WHY GOOD GOVERNANCE IS THE KEY FOR LONG TERM SUSTAINBILTY OF ANY ORGANISATION?

Good governance is accountable

Accountability is a fundamental requirement of good governance.

Good governance is transparent

People should be able to follow and understand the decision-making process. This means that they will be able to clearly see how and why a decision was made.

Good governance follows the rule of law

This means that decisions are consistent with relevant legislation or constitution of organizations and local government.

Good governance is effective and efficient

Organizations should implement decisions and follow processes that make the best use of the available people, resources and time to ensure the best possible results for their community.

Good governance is participatory

Anyone affected by or interested in a decision should have the opportunity to participate in the process for making that decision. This can happen in several ways – community members may be provided with information, asked for their opinion, given the opportunity to make recommendations or, in some cases, be part of the actual decision-making process.
