ICTD Research In Brief 5

Many local governments in Africa have inadequate resources to deliver the services for which they are responsible. This paper examines opportunities and constraints to improving local revenue mobilisation by urban councils in anglophone Africa, including political and administrative constraints and factors affecting citizens’ compliance. It makes a number of recommendations for future policy research.
