Feature matrix of relevant Participatory Budgeting IT tools

On our Interreg Baltic Sea Region project EMPACI website you can now find the Feature matrix of relevant Participatory Budgeting IT tools – http://cities.empaci.eu/

The following table contains an overview of possible Participatory Budgeting (PB) capabilities. It acts as a repository of implantable features. Further, over 50 PB-initiatives around the world were analyzed regarding the implemented functions.

This repository and analysis shall enable interested municipalities to:
1. Learn from other PB-initiatives around the world
2. Select capabilities they are interested in
3. Build a PB-process based on the selected capabilities
4. Compare their implementations & planned processes with different PB-initiatives.
