Broadening Mozambique’s Governance Horizons
By Armando Emílio Guebuza –
Good governance, accountability and inclusive development have been recurrent themes in contemporary international relations and development discourse. Nevertheless, scant attention has been devoted to how – in practice – good governance can be deployed at the national and local level, beyond the confines of representative organs and other conventional accountability mechanisms.
In this context there is our own experience of promoting direct interaction between the government – at the highest level – and local communities in shaping and putting into action a model that triggers greater empowerment of communities and takes the concepts of accountable governance and inclusive development to new heights.
