Decentralizing Small-Scale Industry Promotion in Ghana (1995- 1996)

The decentralisation of administration and the introduction of new administrative structures play an important role in the programme of structural adjustment in Ghana, in particular at district level. In this context also the promotion of small industries was largely decentralised and put into the responsibility of the districts. The study aimed at documenting and analysing the decentralisation process of and new concepts for the promotion of small industries. In particular the question was to be answered whether decentralisation had made the promotion of small industries more effective. The study was part of the research programme of the advanced study course of the Department of Spatial Planning for planners from Africa and Asia (SPRING). The research in Kumasi, Ghana was conducted by Romanus Dinye.
