In 2019, CERC launched a Participatory Budgeting programme in South-Kivu to tackle corruption, to boost citizen participation in the decision making process, and engage government representatives directly with the citizenry. Since, its inception, few months we advocate for the successful implementation of participatory budgeting in South-Kivu.
To this end
■ we connect, build, support, and galvanize a community of effective Participative Budgeting advocates in South-Kivu
■ we help spread understanding and awareness of participatory budgeting among public officials, community leaders, and the general public through training and shared learning, and
■ we support the effective implementation, evaluation, and improvement of participatory budgeting in South-Kivu.
