Rural development did not only intend to improve income and productivity, but also the quality of life, specifically health, education, physical infrastructure, environment and gender. Fernando (2008) categorizes the dimensions of rural development as economic, social, and political. The economic dimension includes efforts to provide the capacity for the poor to gain benefits from economic growth. The social dimension includes efforts to eliminate social inequalities within the rural community. The political dimension includes effort to provide the space for the poor to participate equally in public decision making.

As a result, the overall process empowered the poor to be more active citizens and decreased the bureaucratic domination in budgetary decision making (Bhatnagar et al. 2003). In case of Porto Alegre, the participatory budgeting system substantially improved spending for public services. The representatives from relatively poorer areas could push local government to prioritize their needs so that they could obtain access to facilities that other areas already had. Thus, it also led to equal development across the regions.
