CIVIL SOCIETY CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEVOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION IN ZIMBABWE

A Discussion Paper Presented to the Minister of Local Government Public Works and National Housing

Introduction
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. It outlines government efforts at devolution implementation, citizens’ concerns at the implementation process and key recommendations aimed at improving the process.

Civil Society’s Response to Devolution Implementation
Within the scope of the Zimbabwe Devolution Campaign, civil society recognizes its responsibility to research and articulate citizens’ response to the path and progress of devolution implementation spearheaded by government. It is therefore on this basis that the Campaign is established. Zimbabweans generally expect substantive devolution of power and the Campaign contends that the constitution represents the height of citizen hope in democratic and devolved local governance in Zimbabwe.
