Home > Multilevel administration

In any country–but federal countries in particular–a key question is not whether to “decentralize or not”, but to look at ways to improve political, administrative and fiscal capacity and co-ordination among public stakeholders at different levels of government in order to increase the efficiency, equity and sustainability of the public sector.

This requires public decision-making and administration at all government levels to be consultative, results-oriented and evidence-based; local administration should be non-political, professional and efficient. In addition, effective multilevel administration requires effective coordination between public stakeholders and agencies at the federal, state and local levels.
