The Role of Decentralization in Developing Countries
Improving the communication in development projects in developing countries is very important. Because one major reason for the slow pace of progress in the developing countries has to with the limited participation by the very communities that are to be beneficiaries. Local community members tend to be the most impoverished because they don't have access to resources that would change their lives. The challenge is increased by the relatively centralized nature of our development paradigms.
Therefore if we want to increase the pace of development in developing countries and achieve a transformation in the lives of local community members we need to decentralize these resources and make them available at a local level.
In spite of the cost of decentralizing, if we engage directly with the people at the local communities that presents a large opportunity for faster pace of spreading development.
