12 September - DFI Assists Chad and UNICEF to Finance Child-Oriented SDGs

Wednesday, 12 September 2018 10:37


DFI has been contracted by UNICEF-Chad to conduct a study on Fiscal Space for Spending on Children. The study will examine the spending needed to reach the most closely child-related Sustainable Development Goals on education, health, social protection and water; and the potential sources of fiscal space and financing for such spending.

Chad faces a very difficult context for increasing spending on children given the collapse in oil prices and increased oil-related debt, which have led to major recent cuts in government spending. The first mission will take place in October and the study is expected to be finished by December.
