For decades, Decentralization has been a central theme in the debate on governance worldwide. It is one of the most imperative reforms of the past generation. Its paramount importance in the transition to democracy became a significant point of the deliberations in both developed and developing economics. The most important theoretical argument concerning Decentralization is that it can improve governance by making the government more accountable and responsive to the governed. This paper emphasizes providing conceptual understanding about governance, good governance, Decentralization, and forms of Decentralization. Moreover, the study tries to figure out the relationship between Decentralization and governance and highlight the present status, challenges, and prospects of decentralized governance. Finally, this paper also gives thought-provoking insights to the researchers and policymakers in governance.
