This handbook provides a methodological framework for decisions concerning decentralisation of agricultural services through deconcentration of the public administration, delegation to public or private agencies, devolution, partnerships with civil society organisations or privatisation. These different forms of decentralisation are presented as options to be considered according to the policy objectives pursued. The use of the methodological framework is illustrated through examples drawn from actual country experiences. Although focused on the analytical process of determining the production and allocative efficiency of the various options, the handbook also covers the political dimensions that impinge on the desirability and feasibility of decentralisation, both at the level of individual organisations and of the government reform process.
