Abstract : In Africa, as in the rest of the world, decentralisation is a key element of the institutional and political reforms undertaken since the 1990s. The decentralisation process is only just beginning to materialise in terms of the financial and budgetary autonomy of the local authorities. However, decentralisation remains promising for rural areas with authorities that have considerable governance potential for rebalancing investment, ensuring regional equity and managing tension and crises linked to resources.
