Decentralization and Development in South-Saharan-Africa - The paper provides a summary of Sub-Saharan African experiences with decentralization. During the 1980s, after the widespread economic and public sector reforms, a renewed interest toward decentralization has emerged. To explore the extent, types and forms of decentralization patterns, the authors, drawing on the literature, develop four typologies: deconcentration, delegation, deresponsibility and devolution. These are employed to classify the experiences of the countries for which information was available. Problems associated with the current wave of decentralization arise mostly from the failure to match the pace of political decentralization to that of regulatory reforms. Failures often reflect constraints and perverse incentives in the relationship between levels of government.
