Involving Citizens in Public Budgets: Mechanisms for Transparent and Participatory Budgeting

The publication is a compilation of case studies from the “Transparency in the Americas” grant program, which worked with 10 Latin American civil society organizations to implement new and innovative projects to open public budgeting processes to citizen participation and create mechanisms for greater budget transparency. The book includes valuable lessons learned, as well as a substantial introduction to participatory and transparent budgeting, a tool used to ensure that citizens are informed and involved in their local government’s spending.
