Good governance is the act of building relationships and interactions between government, citizens, business and voluntary sector. In a globalised and fragmented world, good governance builds a framework to ensure quality of life and sustainable growth in the region.
It is the responsibility of local government to unite all sectors and all players to work together. In doing so, the government should reach out to other organisations.
Good governance adds to the quality of a region in many ways. It results in:
* greater effectiveness
* unifying efforts in overcoming sectoral divisions
* equal access to good service-delivery
* allowing citizens to take part in community life - on equal terms (democracy)
* solving lack of transparency, coordination and responsibility division.
