Decentralization policy has promise for improving the delivery of public services, but simply adopting decentralization as a policy does not change a situation.
Decentralization,  defined  as  the  transfer  of authority  from  central  to  local  governments  to  perform  certain  duties,  is  seen  as  one  of the constitutional  rights to  increase  service  delivery.  Decentralization  in  Somaliland  began  in  2002 when the national constitution mandated the government to decentralize the system of governance, with the aim of promoting service delivery and enhancing local participation.
