Good Governance and Public Reform

Increasing Transparency and Accountability

Development Pillars / Good Governance and Public Reform / Increasing Transparency and Accountability

Pillar Objectives

Addressing weak public sector management systems requires developing and implementing oversight mechanisms for transparency and accountability across all government institutions and state owned enterprises. Good governance can be ensured by strengthening democratic processes and enhancing the quality of service delivery through citizen participation. The participation of citizens, independent media, and civil society institutions in policy making and service delivery is fundamental to providing a check on the government and ensuring public administration is more responsive.
