Political governance

The linkages between good governance, democracy and development are recognized by Africa’s major national and regional institutions. Across the continent there is a consensus that good governance advances political representation, civil liberties and constitutionalism and increases transparency and accountability. These elements of democracy boost the legitimacy of the state, which in turn promotes the peace and stability crucial for economic investment. In a continent noted for poverty, good governance is therefore a precondition for poverty reduction.
