The research in this paper addresses several interlocking aspects of the institutional environment in which rural livelihoods are played out. Specifically, findings from research at village, ward and district levels, in two districts of Morogoro region, are used to examine how the changing nature of local government may facilitate and inhibit rural livelihoods for example, through increased grassroot participation, better service delivery and ‘blocking’ institutional arrangements such as rural taxation.
