Understanding Governance

Factsheet

Governance gives a nation, group, community or organisation the ways and means to achieve the things that matter to them.

Effective governance means having rules, structures, and processes that are capable of achieving your objectives. Effective governance gets things done. Governance must also be legitimate. This means your rules, structures, and processes have to be seen as credible and worthy by your members. Legitimate governance gets things done properly.
