Improving governance quality in local governments

A Model for Integrated Local Governance

About this event

Local good governance has gained ever more significance in the current global environment.


At a global scale, humanity is grappling with various challenges and risks such as climate change, rising inequality and polarisation. Governmental action is becoming more critical in dealing with these matters, given their role as the closest public institutions to everyday life. Local government is faced with local, national, and global challenges, whilst simultaneously tasked with improving the development and well-being of its citizens.  Hence, the improvement of governance quality at local governments is on the top of the public agenda.


This webinar provided insights into how to use data to map, measure and improve local governance culture and practices from a citizen-centric perspective. A governance scorecard will be presented for citizen-centric local good governance evaluation. Guest experts will share an example of how to measure and evaluate good governance in local government with an aim to improve prevailing governance culture and practices.
