Governments have a legal obligation to work for the realization of their people’s needs. Details of those obligations are set forth in a variety of legal documents and treaties. Public budgets are mechanisms for allocating public resources, and are often the chief instruments through which governments either comply or fail to comply with their civic obligations. Monitoring and analyzing these budgets has the potential to greatly strengthen development experts’ assessments of their government’s compliance with these civic obligations.

It is on this background that International Budget Partnership [IBP], USA and International Human Rights Internship Program [IHRIP], USA extended invitation to Lookman Oshodi to participate in the Budget Work Learning Program. The program took place in Monrovia, Liberia from July 4 to July 13, 2011. The 12 days programs attracted participants from Nigeria, Cameroon, Rwanda, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The Pictures below show some of the highlights of the learning program;
