The implementation of devolution has been growing all over the world. Overall, there is limited knowledge about devolution, which is proving detrimental to achieving the desired impact and the realization of the highest possible standards of service delivery. Global experience with decentralization bears out the Constitution’s emphasis on governance, transparency and participation. Contrary to common expectations that devolution will improve service delivery, governance factors (such as elite capture, clientelism, capacity constraints, competition over power between levels of government, and weaknesses in performance monitoring) often undermine expected performance Critical capacity gaps have been identified at three levels namely; individual, institutional and enabling environment. At individual level, inadequate knowledge, skills and competencies among technical staff and service providers are evident.
