This report draws on research conducted between 2000 and 2003 as part of the Sustainable Livelihoods in Southern Africa (SLSA) programme. The SLSA programme case studies illustrate that decentralisation is rarely a singular process but consists of multiple processes that occur in different spheres of activity, taking on a variety of forms which may push outcomes in different directions.
