A Discussion Paper Presented to the Minister of Local Government Public Works and National Housing
This paper was prepared by the Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) and the Institute for Young Women Development (IYWD) within the auspices of the Zimbabwe Devolution Campaign CSOs and Residents Association for discussion with the Honourable Minister of Local Government Public Works and National Housing on devolution implementation in Zimbabwe.
