This is our most recent publication that attempts to put meaning to effective public participation while at the same time outline the responsibility of different stakeholders. This booklet will help various stakeholders within the public participation spectrum to undertake their roles to make public participation meaningful. It further demystifies significance of collective planning process at the county level to realize economic and social rights especially for the marginalized and vulnerable communities. The booklet proposes a bottom-up model of planning in which citizens have a bigger role in setting the development agenda and priority areas of their counties. It is our hope that the content of this booklet will help largely in setting up successful collective mechanisms that will ensure public participation achieves its constitutional goal.
