Emphasis on the lived experience of community members taking a front seat & local knowledges inflecting decision-making processes, challenges a top-down approach khổng lồ public decision making. In demonstrating that community contribution matters, public participation challenges the linear, or one-way relationship between government organizationsorganisations và communities

But, as we see when we ask, ‘how vị you engage communities?’, formal initiatives don’t preclude communities actively shaping processes & outcomes of public decisions in the improvement of provision of services for their community.
