Decentralization Infrastructure Seminar 2013

Decentralization Seminar 2013
This conference aims to bring together cutting-edge thinking among policy researchers and development practitioners to explore the relationship between infrastructure and decentralization. In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, developed and developing countries face continued pressures to generate productive infrastructure for growth and poverty reduction. Sub-national governments in the OECD are already responsible for two thirds of public investment spending; and in developing countries, local governments are increasingly responsible for creating and preserving infrastructure assets. However, the role of decentralization in infrastructure provision remains poorly understood. Is decentralization consistent with more infrastructure spending for growth and poverty reduction?
