Knowledge Management and Decentralization

Decentralization Briefing Notes:
The notes are designed to highlight the broad range of issues that need to be considered with regard to decentralization. They provide brief overviews of the many different aspects of decentralization and summarize key issues that need to be considered by practitioners. Each note, prepared originally for a World Bank website to help Bank staff understand the multi-dimensional aspects of decentralization, is meant to help readers understand the cross-cutting nature of decentralization and the importance of a comprehensive approach.

PREM Notes:
The PREM Note series are intended to summarize good practice and key policy findings on Economic Policy, Gender, Governance and Public Sector Reform, and Poverty.
