This is still work in progress. I have been trying to map participatory budgeting and e-participatory budgeting initiatives across the world.There are many more e-participatory budgeting initiatives to be inserted, as well as offline initiatives. The e-PB initiatives included so far are highlighted in red color.
If anyone here at can think of any cases to be included or would like to collaborate in this effort, please let me know.
Any suggestions on how I could make this map more useful are very welcome.
You should add Vallejo, California. The City of Vallejo is currently undergoing a PB process. The vote will take place in the spring of 2013.
Thanks Marti. Is there any link that describes the initiative so that I can add it?
You could add Azkoitia, in the Basque Country. Azkoitia City Council has developed participatory budgeting processes the past three years.
You have related info in these links (in basque):
Bonjour, la commune de Divion 62 460 en France dans le Pas-de-Calais a également mis en oeuvre un budget participatif depuis 2011.
Hi Tiago! Wonderful map! I have started to research about this topic just now and find your map extremely useful. One question though: what would be the meaning of the colors int he markers of your map? I read above that read is for the e-PB ones, but what’s the difference between blue and yellow?
I’m glad you find it helpful. In fact there’s no difference between the two colors (blue and yellow). Other colleagues added it and forgot to pay attention at the color. So all the red are e-PB ones and the rest traditional “offline” PBs. The map does need some updating though, which I expect to do soon.
in North Africa, Tunisia if the first country to adopt the PB process since 2014. You may find a description of it in our website : http://www.actionassociative.org/publications/ ==> Budget Participatif 2014 + Budget Participatif 2015. The documents are published in french language.
