Guidelines for Developing an Education Budget Brief


Shared accountabilities

It is strongly recommended that the education team in the country office lead the development of the education budget brief. Education staff should be familiar with the key policy and budget issues that need to be emphasized and also be able to identify useful indicators, relevant policy, strategy and planning documents, and budget data. In this regard, the education team should be responsible for: (i) collecting budget data and other documentation from government counterparts; (ii) supporting the analysis of the data, where capacity exists; (iii) drafting the different sections of the brief; (iv) developing and refining the key messages and recommendations; (v) sharing the draft with government counterparts for review and validation; (vi) disseminating the brief to relevant partners; and (vii) developing and leading the implementation of a budget brief impact action plan to operationalize the main recommendations of the brief.
