Democratic Governance

Our Good Governance and Democracy Program focus on enhancing relations between elected representatives, appointed officials, and citizens.We work to address the structural barriers to equitable, accountable and transparent

governance, and to mitigate local level conflict and marginalization.

The program uses communication for development approaches to address the lack of strong good governance systems in the countries we operate, which has an impact on processes of institutionalizing democracy as well as facilitating citizen driven development. To this effect, the program promotes citizen participation in the devolution processes and equips the media with skills to contribute to preventing and mitigating conflict.
