The Association for Emancipation, Solidarity and Equality of Women – ESE published a very useful publication “Budget monitoring and advocacy manual for harm reduction”. The manual provides detailed information for each of the stages in the process of budget monitoring and advocacy. Those who want to analyse and monitor budgets and advocate for more funds for harm reduction, can learn a lot from it.
ESE worked in partnerships with DPNSEE member organisation HOPS for several years to achieve an excellent success with ensuring that harm reduction services are supported from the national budget. The two organisations organised the training for organisations in Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia in December 2017. DPNSEE is currently planning a project in the three countries on budget advocacy and monitoring.
The manual is available from the ESE webpage following this link>>>
