Participatory Budgeting in Fissel, Senegal

By: Bara Guèye

This chapter presents a case study on participatory budgeting as a tool to promote inclusive and transparent mechanisms of local governance. The initiative took place in the communauté rurale (rural commune) of Fissel, one of the first rural communes in Senegal to be decentralized in 1972. Fissel also benefits from many years of active community life, which has encouraged the creation of dynamic local organizations.
