Alternatives to Regional Governance

There is a great variety of governance and territorial structures, and handling the regional tier can be problematic.

In very small and sparsely populated countries, there may be no regional tier.

In larger sparsely populated countries, there is usually a need for regional administration, organized by the central government.

There can be a combination of central appointment and regional representation.

There can be two tiers of local government, with regional organization handled on a service-by-service basis if it is required.
