Research & Evaluation

To measure and deepen the impacts of PB, we conduct and support rigorous research and evaluation. For existing PB processes, we work with local partners and stakeholders to develop evaluation frameworks and tools, carry out research, analyze data, and disseminate findings. For cities and institutions considering new or expanded PB processes, we also conduct feasibility and scoping studies. To support these local efforts and maximize broader learning, we develop common research metrics, instruments, resources, and data archives.

Participatory Evaluation in Toronto

We carried out a two-year participatory evaluation of PB at Toronto Community Housing, engaging 25 public housing tenants and staff in documenting and identifying improvements for the process.
