Democratic Governance

CPHDA’s governance programs seek to promote effective public-sector institutions and processes that operate in a manner consistent with democratic values of transparency, representation, pluralism and accountability.

The Center views the development of strong, democratic, public-sector institutions as essential to  its mission. It is through improved governance that citizens’ lives can be mostly impacted with the benefits of democratic governance. A contrario, the inability of public sector institutions to function effectively and democratically undermines the sustainability of democratic reform. Working with different stakeholders, CPHDA’s governance programs seek to promote effective public-sector institutions and processes that operate in a manner consistent with democratic values of transparency, representation, pluralism and accountability. CPHDA delivers technical and institutional support to local governments, civil societies groups, and governments while emphasizing the significance of their political involvement.
