CHAPTER ONE 1.0 Introduction: This chapter will include the background of the study, the statement of the problem, general objective of the study, specific objectives of the study, research questions, research scope, and the significance ofthe study. 1.1 Back ground of the study There is a perception that poor countries are poor because they do not practice effective and efficient decentralization. There is also international and local acceptance that decentralized governance reduces poverty and enhances development in poor countries. The UN and its agencies such as UNDP and World Bank fully support this idea about poverty reduction and decentralization and sometimes go to the extent of making the 14 practice of decentralization a condition for attracting loans, grants and technical aid as a condition for development. The UNDP view poverty as revealed by Rakodi (1995) as a situation of people deprived of those opportunities and choices that are essential to human development, for a long healthy creative life, a reasonable standard of living, freedom, dignity, self-respect and respect from others. This is referred to as the life situation approach to poverty. In Africa there are signs of poverty everywhere to the extent that three hundred and forty (340) million people or half the population of Africa lives on less than $1.00 per day. The mortality rate of children under five (5) years of age is 140 per 1,000 and life expectancy at birth is only fifty-four (54) years. Only 58 percent of the population has access to safe water. The rate of illiteracy for people over l5years is 41 percent (New Partnership for Africa’s Development Report, 2001). Moreover, many hundreds of millions of people in the poorer countries are preoccupied solely with survival and elementary needs. For them, work is frequently not available or when it is, pay is low and conditions often barely tolerable. Homes are constructed of impermanent materials and have neither piped water nor sanitation. Electricity is a luxury. Health services are thinly spread and in rural areas only rarely within walking distance. Primary schools, where they exist, may be free and not too far away, but children are needed for work and cannot be easily spared for schooling. Permanent insecurity is the condition of the poor. There are no public systems of social security in the event of unemployment, sickness or death of
