Good governance promotes, endorses and preserves equity, participation, pluralism and development.
Improving democratic governance in a country is perhaps a less tangible and more complex mechanism than social policies, but one that is equally important and effective for building social cohesion. Therefore political and state institutions are required which are efficient and effective, which are seen as legitimate by their citizens, which conduct their actions under the principles of transparency and integrity. Corruption, violence, impunity and lack of access to justice undermine the capacities of the State. Therefore, democracy and rule of law are essential for the formulation of inclusive policies and efficient fulfilment of the State's administrative and management functions.
