This manual breaks down various definitions of devolution in a bid to demystify this form of governance. The various roles and structures of leadership are defined in order to enable citizens to understand available avenues for participation and civic engagement. The Human Rights Based Approach in devolved governance is the inspirational terminology that refers to the duty bearer and right holder. This classifies certain human rights and explains the underpinning principles. The Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) is highlighted herein to explore guiding principles and key issues that link human rights to development. The discussion on governance institutions seeks to enhance users understanding on the roles mandated to respective public institutions. It provides users with a catalogue of institutions through which they can channel their grievances for redress.
