An Overview of NPA Decentralization in Developing Countries
Carlos Castillo Cardona
The 1990 World Summit for Children brought together 71 Heads of State and Government to discuss ways in which to improve the lives of the worldâ€™s children. The international â€˜Plan of Actionâ€™ adopted at the summit recognised the importance of grass-roots initiatives at the local level. Countries have responded to this call for decentralisation in the development and implementation of their individual â€˜National Programmes of Actionâ€™. Using survey data from 103 UNICEF field offices from across the world, this paper aims to provide a general overview of the NPA decentralisation phenomenon - where and how it is occurring, the roles of the major actors and the results that have been achieved to date.
