INTRODUCTION

In order for our work on governance and accountability to have legitimacy, we must first demonstrate good governance and accountability within our organization’s own programs and operations Good governance requires that citizens monitor power-holders and that power-holders evaluate whether their systems and practices produce the intended positive impact on citizens’ lives.
