Functional Assignments and Public Accountability

A working paper on “Functional Assignments and Public Accountability” by Future Forum’s young research fellow, CHHERN Sreyneang:

It is observed that, despite legislation assigning functions in a broad manner consisting of obligation and mandatory functions, there is a lack of any meaningful functions such as education and natural resource management devolved to local governments.”
