Publication of the Second Edition of the African Review of Local Finance

UCLG Africa is glad to announce the release of the second edition of its publication “African Review of Local Finance” (edition 2016).

*”With this second issue, the Secretariat General of UCLG Africa undertakes to consolidate the publication of the African Review of Local Finance; a review that is more relevant than ever, as the financial aspects of the decentralization processes become predominant. The decentralization process that are becoming widespread in most African states are characterized by a level of financial decentralization where there is much room for improvement, and that proves to be the main sticking point of decentralization policies.

This issue of the African Review of Local Finance reports the process and results of the evaluation of the costs of the powers transferred to local authorities. It presents the experiences of Burkina Faso,

Côte d’Ivoire, Niger, and Chad. It also addresses public-private partnerships in Africa with the case of Senegal and Madagascar.

Production saw the contribution of the members of the network of Chief Financial Officers of UCLG Africa (Africa Finet)

Your opinion, comments and critiques are welcome to enable us to better structure the African Review of Local Finance and make it more professional, helpful, and fun to read.

Thank you for your much-anticipated contributions”.

Jean Pierre Elong Mbassi, Secretary General, UCLG Africa
