Good Governance


To develop continuous learning for the improvement of good practice in effective corporate governance between alliance members globally.

The Global Good Governance Alliance (GGGA) is an initiative of the Good Governance Academy.

The ethos of GGGA is to ‘give back’ from the current generation to the next, whilst sharing our continuing development.

We collaborate for the betterment of good governance practices around the world.

Alliance members

Members of the GGGA are, in the most part, small and developing nations that do not have sufficient resources to offer their nationals a comprehensive range of governance development tools and processes. 

The initiative is inclusive and collaborative between nations and their national associations working for the betterment of the governance of organizations. The initiative is also inclusive of aspiring, new and experienced directors as well as governance professionals such as chartered or company secretaries and subject matter areas such as Data Governance, IT Governance and Risk Governance.

We are inclusive across governance roles, nations and national associations.


The GGGA is self-funded through its service delivery. It is open to philanthropic ‘no-strings-attached’ funding but does not accept any governmental or other institutional funding likely to compromise its independence.

We aspire to become UN accredited.

Service delivery

The GGGA has two main roles:

  1. As a global receiver and disseminator of good governance practice; and
  2. As a provider of developmental, research and training processes.


These roles complement, but don’t compete with, the individual existing national and/or national association activities.

The GGGA promotes globally accepted practices, common law and regulations but is open to other developments beyond these sources of guidance.

We are continually seeking and promoting good governance practices using input from around the world.


The GGGA is a collaborative initiative with an informal governance structure.

The Patron of the GGGA is Professor Bob Garratt.

The Founder Members  act as alliance ambassadors, encouraging others to join and include: Charlotte Valeur, Carolynn Chalmers,  Kamla Rampersad De Silva, and Edwin Ward.

An appropriate, formal governance structure and process be agreed depending on the growth of the GGGA membership.

We are an initiative of the Good Governance Academy with the Global Governance Group (GGG) and the Caribbean Corporate Governance Institute (CCGI) as founders.
