Plan International’s pre-budget submission for 2023/24 makes recommendations as to how the Australian Government can uphold the rights of girls, young women and gender diverse young people through the Australian aid budget.
We’ve recommended that the Australian aid budget:
- recognises and works with adolescent girls and gender diverse young people as leaders and agents of change
- supports the 222 million children who are missing out on an education because of armed conflicts, forced displacement and climate-induced disasters by urging a commitment to the Education Cannot Wait fund
- provides immediate famine relief for the worst affected hunger hotspots
- invests in climate resilience and commits to climate financing.
