A MUCH publicised event in the last quarter of this century is the decentralisation of power which transfers volumes of responsibilities from higher level intitutions to grassroot level organisations with much emphasis on people's responsibility and government's transparency. The newly created constitutional institutions at the grassroot level have to perform a variety of functions under the guidance of the leaders elected by the people. Hence, it is necessary that the capacity of the leaders be enhanced. The book is a compilation of documents on programmes which are aimed at building the capacity of these leaders to meet the challenges of this century.
