Participatory budgeting, an innovation in direct citizen participation
in government decision making, began 25 years ago
in a town in Brazil. It has since been adopted by 1,000 other
cities worldwide and by some U.S. cities as well.
It started two decades ago with CompStat in the New York City Police Department and
quickly jumped to police agencies across the world as well as to other agencies within
New York City. It was adapted by the City of Baltimore, which created CitiStat, the first
application of this leadership strategy to an entire jurisdiction.
