Between February and September 2016, the Kota Kita Foundation documented participatory budgeting practices in six districts and cities in Indonesia, including Yogyakarta, Makassar, Surabaya, Bandung and Municipality of Kebumen.
The research observed and documented the experiences of participatory budgeting, and evaluated its constraints and prospects. The resulting recommendations advocate for more transparent, inclusive and effective models of participatory budgeting.

In November, they will be holding a national workshop entitled: Revitalizing the Musrenbang for Inclusive and Transparent Participatory Budgeting in Indonesian Cities.
