Although some countries in Latin America and the Caribbean are among the most decentralized in the world, there is considerable variation within the region with respect to their level of decentralization. In different countries, contrasting forces, some leading to increased centralization and some to greater decentralization, are producing an ongoing restructuring of the public sector. This webinar highlights the experiences of Chile, Colombia and Peru, each of which—in their own way—are in the process of reforming their system of intergovernmental relations towards greater decentralization. Presentations and discussions not only highlighted the technical details of the reforms being envisioned, but also considered the political economy drivers behind the decentralization reforms on the horizon.
