Main Roles of the Ministry
The Ministry has the role to coordinate and spearhead the decentralization process. The Directorate for Decentralisation Coordination of the Ministry is entrusted with the effective coordination and management of the process. The other four Directorates (Regional and Local Government and Traditional Authority Coordination; Housing, Habitat, Planning and Technical Services Coordination, Rural Development; and Finance, Human Resources, Administration and Information Technology) are supporting the decentralization either through direct decentralization measures or through more general supportive services to the regional authorities, local authorities and traditional authorities, while at the same time attending to the mandated normal or routine functions of the Ministry.
