The answer is indeed unknown as of now. Perhaps there is no need to worry about it: it’s possible that the authority of the NRA and its sub-regional offices will be clearly separated in words and deeds from those of the ministries’ line agencies and the local bodies. But even then, why not strengthen and work with the existing local offices instead of creating a parallel structure? We raise this issue simply because it’s hard to ignore the possibility that it might erupt. It’s positive that the NRA finally got off the ground but only the next months will show how well it works in practice, also at local level.
