Financing decentralization

The financing of a State’s sub-national levels of government, in federal and other systems alike, is an instrument of decentralization; first, each State has to decide what area of responsibility to assign to each governmental level and then it must design a suitable financing mechanism. If these sub-national governments’ degrees of fiscal and administrative autonomy are not kept in alignment, then eventually the initiative may fait as the bodies at these levels gradually lose decision-making power within their sphere of responsibility.
