Decentralization and Its Implications for Urban Service Delivery

Price: $ 22

Urban Management Programme Paper 16.

Many developing countries with large populations have embarked on some form of transfer of political power to local government. However, instead of functioning as a carefully designed sequence of reforms, decentralization has become a disorderly series of reluctant concessions by central governments attempting to maintain political stability.

Even under these circumstances, decentralization still provides donors with an opportunity to promote the kinds of fundamental reforms that were once difficult to implement. By examining the elements of decentralization and its effects on urban services and the stability of national economies the author proposes a framework for analysis and outlines directions for reform.
