Participatory Budgeting

Participatory budgeting is a type of participatory democracy, in which ordinary people decide how to allocate part of a municipal or public budget.

Participatory Budgeting generally involves several basic steps, namely:

  • Community members identify spending priorities and select budget delegates
  • Budget delegates develop specific spending proposals, with help from experts
  • Community members vote on which proposals to fund
  • The city or institution implements the top proposals
