Involving Women in Municipal Budgeting

 The Lebanese Organization for Studies and Training in cooperation with the British Embassy in Lebanon finalized the training phase of the “Promoting Women’s Role in Participatory Budgeting” project. Women participating in the project took part in several workshops on citizenship, civic participation, municipal work and advocacy.

They also held several meetings with the municipality of Housh El-Refka, El-Hermel and El-Nabi Othman. Currently women are preparing necessary tools to start a need assessment in different villages. The purposes of this assessment is to examine different needs of these villages as perceived by women and to reflect on how to find appropriate solutions.
