Governance

Good governance, or the “process of creating and sustaining an environment for inclusive and responsive political processes and settlements”, is critical to regional growth and development (UNDP, 2011). The thematic area of Governance explores how Caribbean governments should manage their countries’ resources in delivering public services efficiently and effectively, ensuring accountability and transparency. This is critical if the Caribbean public is to regain confidence in political and administrative authorities and the decisions taken in managing the region’s affairs.
