Humanitarian Fund - Participatory Budgeting

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is about local people having a direct say in how public money is spent. The process of PB can vary greatly, but the core of it looks like this:

  1. Groups or organisations have ideas on what they could do with the money
  2. The people of the community vote for which idea(s) they like the most
  3. The projects with the most votes are funded
