Example text

The woredas are considered the key local government units in each region, with significant responsibility for providing basic services. The local government landscape follows similar patterns across regions. There are 140 local governments (128 rural woredas and 12 urban administrations) in Amhara, 284 local 13 14 World Bank Working Paper governments (248 rural woredas and 36 urban administrations) in Oromiya, 156 local governments (137 rural woredas and 19 urban administrations) in SNNPR, and 47 local governments (34 rural woredas and 13 urban administrations) in Tigray.

All figures other than in the “Population” column are in Birr. Source: Data provided by MoFED. The three regions receiving the lowest per capita transfers in 2005/06 were also the largest regions in terms of population: Oromiya, Amhara, and SNNPR. This illustrates the built-in “bias” that the “three-parameter” formula has against larger regions, if one looks at per capita allocations. 2). The relationship is so tight that factors other than population, such as the development level of a region, appear to have little influence on the final level of per capita transfer of a region.

Recurrent needs are identified based on on-going expenditure obligations and the total transfer amount is negotiated with the region—in contrast to the formulabased approach used for block grant transfers to rural woredas. However, there are differences in approach. In some regions such as SNNPR, the “state functions” of the urban administrations are financed by block grant transfers following a similar formula as for the rural woredas. In SNNPR, however, the transfers for the urban administrations come from a separate pool of funding, which is divided across the 19 different urban administrations in the region.
