Study on Services


This paper, written in Dhivehi, identifies government services provided to the public resident in islands of The Maldives. It summarises current arrangements for providing services and role of island and atoll administration. This paper also recommends new measures to improve accessiblity to the services and accountablity of the services providers. I prepared it with the participation of two civil servants who have several years of experience in managing local administrations. This paper can be accessed at:




The aim of this study is to contribute to the cause of reforming local governance with an emphasis on enhancing development and decentralising services.


I believe without a good understanding of the services rendered, and other associated tasks,proper organisational strucutures and staff requirements cannot be determined.
