Evaluating the Effectiveness of Local Revenue Mobilization in Kumasi, Ghana
The paper evaluates the effectiveness of local revenue mobilization in the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Ghana. The indicators for the evaluation included the Revenue Performance Index (RPI), Financial Autonomy Index (FAI) and Local Finance Support Index (LFSI). Both the primary and secondary sources of data were used as well as the employment of quantitative and qualitative data analysis methods. The paper reveals that KMA depends more on transfers to finance its development. There is therefore the need for the assembly to outline pragmatic measures to increase its Internally Generated Fund (IGF).
