    Re: Good Governance

    The concept of "governance" is not new. It is as old as human civilization.Simply the "governance" means:the process of decision making and the process by which decisions are implemented or not. Governance can be used in several contexts such as corporate governance, international governance, national governance and local governance.There are two types of governance one is good and one bad governance. Government is one of the actors in governance. Other actors involved in governance vary depending on the level of government that is under discussion. It is also responsive to the present and future needs of society.Transparency means that decisions taken and their enforcement are done in a manner that follows rules and regulations.
