This literature review has been developed to support RiPPLE's Governance and Planning (GaP) theme. Its objective is to provide conceptual underpinning to the first stages of research undertaken by the GaP theme. As such it is concerned primarily with establishing a framework of key concepts and issues in which to anchor the action research of the GaP theme. The focus is on the core areas of: decentralisation, and decentralised service delivery; governance and specifically water governance; and participation, especially in planning.
