The forum examines the emergence of decentralized local government
structures in the South Asian region as a precursor for good governance,
and its inextricable link to sustainable human development.  The
convergence of civil society activity with the new emerging local
government structures, have the potential for far-reaching consequences

experience of decentralization (of services) in Canada. The forum will

for participatory change.
