What is its purpose?

The indicator assesses the extent to which the local authorities’ budgeting reflects the needs identified by the local civil society representatives (formal and informal).

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Use review of relevant documents and key informant interviews (with the authorities, local citizens engaged in the participatory budget planning, CSO representatives, etc.) to collect and analyze the following data:

 

1) List all priorities which, in a given time period, were proposed by the local citizens, accepted by the local authorities for financial support and included in their budgets.

 

2) Assess the financial volume of priorities identified through participatory processes.

 

3) Assess the authorities’ total budget for the same reference period.  

 

4) Calculate the indicator’s value by dividing the total financial volume of spending priorities identified through participatory processes and included in municipalities’ budgets by the municipalities’ total budgets and multiplying the result by 100.
