Breaking Challenges in Constructing Citizens Budgets for PEMPAL Countries

June 2017

This knowledge product was developed by the BCOP Budget Literacy and Transparency Working Group. At the start of the Group’s work, citizens’ budgets were not common in the PEMPAL region. Thus, the group decided to make this reform their focus and to identify challenges they were currently facing and to share solutions on how to address them. The Working Group identified 10 challenges to developing Citizens’ Budgets in the region, and documented them in this knowledge product that identifies peer and international advice to address them.
