Item description for Democratising Local Government: The South African Experiment by Susan Parnell...
Successful strategies for developing local governments in South Africa are outlined in this guide. With the tools this handbook provides, government officials, politicians, and community organizers learn how to design and decentralize a local government, budget a local economy, and develop municipal partnerships. The specific challenges of combating poverty, gender inequality, and environmental damage, as well as the differences between developing urban and rural local governments, are addressed. A look at the theories of local development and decentralization within the context of the lessons learned in South Africa provides a useful source of knowledge and comparison for developing local governments worldwide.
