Abstract

This article aims at identifying the preconditions for the implementation of fiscal decentralization in a developing country by studying the case of Cameroon. The observation of the graphical elements made for this purpose shows that there is a positive correlation between the evolution of the decentralization process and that of two key economic indicators, namely the economic growth rate and the level of public debt. A set of other indicators such as population size, literacy rate and socio-political stability are also important in deciding on the implementation of the fiscal decentralization process in a developing country. The quality of the indicators mentioned above can either accelerate or limit the implementation of the decentralization process in a developing country.
