A youth organization that seeks to promote youth participation in national development processes seeks to engage a consultant to undertake training in national budgeting processes. The national budget is central to policy implementation, as most of the major provisions of policy need resourcing. A government budget is important in the implementation of youth development because: It is through a government budget that public services to youth such as health, education and housing are delivered; It is both an economic and social policy tool for addressing inequality, marginalization and vulnerabilities of specific youth (young women, rural based youth youth with disability); It demonstrates the real commitment of a government to promoting youth development; It is an instrument for holding a government accountable for its commitments to children.
In line with good economic governance, budgeting should take place in an environment of transparency and accountability. Budget transparency refers to the inclusiveness and openness of the budgeting system to public engagement and scrutiny. The contracting youth organization therefore seeks to conduct a training that provides youth organizations with the necessary tools and understanding of the national budgeting process. Treasury is expected to publish quarterly treasury bulletins and consolidated Monthly Financial statements and this training will ensure that youth are able to understand such documents and how it affects the work that they do.
