Abstract:Over the last fifteen years, the Tanzanian government has implemented a huge public administration reform programme, based on decentralization by devolution (DbyD). The authors carried out a project to take stock of DbyD achievements in four selected areas and make an inventory of the way decentralization institutions in Tanzania actually work. The four areas examined include public administration and leadership, organizational and institutional management, human resources management, and service delivery managament. Chapters: African public administration at work (Ko de Ridder, Ben Emans, Rudie Hulst, & Albertjan Tollenaar); Decentralization of human resource management in Tanzanian governmental organizations (Stella Kinemo et al.); Tensions in politico-administrative relations in Tanzanian local government (Wilhelm Mafuru et al.); Village leadership and good governance in Tanzania (Eliza Mwakasangula et al.); Institutionalized coproduction in the delivery of agricultural services: experiences from the cashew nut value chain in southern Tanzania (Gustav Kunkuta & Paul Amani).
