Budget Monitoring & Participatory Budget Project
This project is made up of two components, i.e., participatory budgeting and budget monitoring.
Participatory budgeting refers to a process of planning, implementing and budgeting monitoring which places the citizens at the core of the decision-making process. Participatory budgeting offers the opportunity to decide on resource allocation in order to prioritise the various social policies of the local collectivities and to keep under control the execution of the expenditures.
Participatory budgeting is therefore a most valuable and advantageous tool for both civil society organizations and the civil service as well as for the territorial collectivities. Participatory budgeting consists of eleven stages, i.e.: the preparation, the villagers’ forum for constraints and priority identification, the delegates’ forum, the community-based forum, its implementation, the forum for reporting on the voted budget, the mid-year review and the assessment forum as well as the inter-village final evaluation and the next budget preparation forum.
The overall objective is to lend support to the local governance through the promotion of transparency and accountability among the local stakeholders.
- to publicise both information and tools related to participatory budgeting ;
- to build the local stakeholders’ capacity in relation to the principles of participatory budgeting ;
- to support the establishment of a Local Integrity System;
