Comparative Studies of Decentralisation in East Africa

DEGE Consult partners have successfully undertaken a large number of analytical studies of decentralisation, local governance and local service delivery in several countries. This includes two comprehensive comparative studies of the three East African countries: Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.

The first study was conducted by our team in 2004 with World Bank funding. It applied a strict comparative and comprehensive approach to the analysis of decentralization with emphasis on five dimensions: (1) legal and institutional arrangements (2) LG Political Structures (3) LG Finance arrangements, (4) LG Human Resource Management and (5) overall central government supporting institutions.

An overall synthesis report Full Synthesis Report and three country reports were produced (link). The assignment culminated with a large stakeholder workshop attended by the ministers responsible for local government in the three countries and several neighbouring countries.

The second study was financed by JICA and completed in 2008. The study expanded the 2004 study with emphasis on the particular sector arrangements for delivery of local level services for education, health and agriculture. The study explores the impact of these arrangements on (a) governance (transparency and accountability) and (b) service delivery.
