This volume queries the state and effect of the global decentralisation movement through the study of natural resource decentralisation in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The case studies presented here use a comparative framework to characterise the degree to which natural resource decentralisations can be said to be taking place and, where possible, to measure their social and environmental consequences. In general, the cases show that threats to national-level interests are producing resistance that is fettering the struggle for reform.
