The participatory budgeting where lauched in Cameroon in 2003, during the third edition of Africities Summit of local government. Two cities (Batcham and Edzendoung) where involved. In 2008, 4 local's councils in the city of Yaoundé, the Political Capital city of Cameroon, engage the process. In 2010, Douala which is the economic capital city lauched the first cycle of participatory budgeting in two local's councils. The evaluation made this year discover that 19 cities in Cameroon are using this skill to improve participation of gras roots organisations and citizens in decision making as far as public ressources are concerned.
