Gaps and pitfalls in current practices
Assessing the resources allocated to the realization of HRWs
Once you have planned the strategy of your intervention, a key step to set up the budget of your programme will be to cost the implementation of the planned activities and corresponding processes.A human rights-based approach to the budget demands that budget be made on the basis of transparency, accountability, non-discrimination, participation and sustainability. It also demands to allocate resources not only to the activities but also to the implementation process.
At the end of the budgeting process, you must have:
- Earmarked resources for the activities themselves and for the implementation process to be in accordance with the principles of non-discrimination, access to information, participation, accountability, and sustainability
- Ensure that budget of the programme or project has been defined in coordination with national or local authorities, and that financial documents concerning the project are available to the public
