Participatory budgeting is a democratic process in which community members decide how to spend part of a public budget. Over 1,500 municipalities, regional and state governments, and institutions around the world use it to engage people in public budgets. PB usually involves an annual cycle of public deliberation about spending priorities, voting on spending proposals, and implementation and monitoring of the chosen projects.
