Executive Summary:Central America: Regional Analysis on Investment in Children and Adolescents
In 2012, Plan International and the Central American Institute for Fiscal Studies (Icefi) established a working relationship aimed at advocating for the rights of children and adolescents in the region. In 2013, both organizations prepared the first report on the public investment in children and adolescents in all countries in the region except for Panama. In 2015, the organizations subscribed a cooperation agreement that made possible the elaboration of the current study. In contrast to the previous report, it includes data from autonomous and decentralized entities. The study analyses public investments made in children and adolescents between 2007 and 2013, in six countries of the Central American region, including Panama.
