The guiding principles of good governance generally include:
Transparency: decision-making processes should be open and accessible to the public, and information should be readily available.
Participation: citizens should have the opportunity to participate in decision-making processes that affect their lives.
Responsiveness: the government should respond to the needs and concerns of citizens in a timely and effective manner.
Consensus-oriented: decisions should be made through a process of inclusive dialogue and consensus-building.
Equity: the government should be fair and impartial, treating all citizens equally.
Effectiveness and Efficiency: governance should be effective in meeting the needs of citizens and efficient in the use of resources.
Accountability: government officials should be held accountable for their actions, both to the public and to institutional oversight bodies.
Rule of law: governance should be conducted in accordance with the rule of law, with legal frameworks that are fair, impartial and consistently enforced.
It’s important to note that these principles are not always easy to implement and good governance is a difficult task and it varies from country to country and culture to culture.
