2017/03 – Chr.Michelsen Institute (CMI); CMI Insight no. 1; Author(s): Odd-Helge Fjeldstad, Merima Ali and Tom Goodfellow Details

In this Insight we examine political and administrative constraints facing the development of effective property tax systems. Based on experiences from across the African continent, we argue that the major obstacles to improved property rates is not valuation, but poor administration and political resistance to reform. We suggest ways ahead.
