Local Government Reform in Zambia: The 2016 Constitution’s Framework for Devolution is the first book that assesses the framework for devolved governance as provided for in the 2016 Constitution of Zambia.

This book, particularly the reforms it recommends, provides an understanding of the extent to which the Local Government Act of 2019 operationalised the framework for devolution provided for in the 2016 Constitution.

Experts from various fields discuss the motivation behind the adoption of devolution in Zambia. They explore what the framework for devolution entails and how it can be implemented in practice.

This in-depth analysis of local government reforms in Zambia was edited by Tinashe C Chigwata, Nico Steytler and Jaap de Visser (all from the Dullah Omar Institute at the University of the Western Cape) and Frank Kunda (College Principal at the Chalimbana Local Government Training Institute of the Ministry of Local Government in Zambia).

"Apart from serving as an introduction to those pursuing a career in local government, the book, no doubt, provides contemporary society with a clear understanding of the extent to which local government operations in Zambia meet peoples’ daily wants.’ – Maurice Mbolela: Executive Director, Local Government Association of Zambia."
