  • Happiness is Like Water in a Net: Presentation notes on the Porto Alegre Participatory Budget, Brazil

    Baierle, Sergio (2000)

But they also need real commitment, matched by actions and resources, to support their efforts to attain their rights and overcome the obstacles that trap them in poverty.
