Concerted effort is needed in areas of tax administration,capacity building,law enforcement and review of indicators in the formula for allocating the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF)to the districts in Ghana.Such review should be pro-poor based and geared towards addressing development gaps among the districts in Ghana, particularly development needs of resource-poor districts including the Gomoa West District.The book is recommended for everybody interested in local governments financing.
