for improving citizen access to fiscal information and participation in Senegal's budgeting process  
ONG-3D promotes democracy through government transparency and people’s participation in local governance in Senegal to ensure their rights to basic public services are met. This grant will support a program to improve citizens’ access to Senegal’s national budget information by creating and publishing a version of the budget that is easily understandable by citizens and that meets the standards of the International Budget Partnership for "citizen budgets." This grant will also support experimentation and mechanisms for citizen engagement in local government budget processes as Senegal decentralizes public services.
