  • About the Edition

    Many arguments about decentralization in public goods provision have testable implications for the relationship between decentralization and the level and spatial variability of public goods. This paper explores the empirical relationship between decentralization and environmental public good, water quality in rivers at monitoring stations around the world. It examines pollution levels and spatial variability of pollution within a country for both a local and a regional pollutant. The results suggest higher pollution levels with greater decentralization when fixed effects are included; the evidence is strongest for the regional pollutant, where it might result from interjurisdictional free riding. Federalism is associated with greater spatial variability in pollution within a country, consistent with the traditional view that decentralization allows policies more tailored to local conditions.

      Decentralized treatment is simply the practice of locating water and wastewater treatment plants at the site of water supply, demand, or ideally both. It’s a flexible, sustainable alternative to large treatment plants that require miles of expensive supply and delivery infrastructure. Identifying the Impact of Education Decentralization on the Quality of Education Introduction Low-quality education is an endemic problem in most developing countries. International tests of student achievement consistently show that developing countries score at the bottom of the performance scale. In many countries, raising.

    From the perspective of environmental federalism, we extracted the environmental intention words from the work reports of China’s central and provincial governments through data mining, and used the instrumental variable method to conduct empirical experiments concerning the dispute between centralization and decentralization of environmental governance in the Chinese : Zhigao Luo, Xinyun Hu, Mingming Li, Jirui Yang, Chuanhao Wen. Figure Five forms of decentralization. Three factors [14] help to explain the differences between various forms of administrative decentralization with respect to the objectives which decentralization policy wishes to achieve: Production efficiency, that is the cost and quality of services delivered.

      Decentralised environmental governance has become a catchy solution to environmental problems caused by the failure of traditional centralised environmental governance. It promises to transfer power and authority, improve efficiency, equity, accountability, and inclusion of local people who were previously excluded by the command and control by: 7. decentralization could result in a severe reduction of environmental quality, as a consequence of ‘destructive interjurisdictional competition’ (Cumberland, , ). The so-called ‘race to the bottom’ could lead toexcessively lax environmental standards. With respect to Cited by: 1.
