The International Conference “Governance and Sustainable Development” held by the Institute of National Planning on 3-4 June, discussed various types of governance, which are not just about institutions, but also about their quality and efficiency.
It is essential to have sufficient data in order to have good management. It’s not only about educating people about governance and sustainable development. It’s more about making them believe in it.
In addition, planning reforms should be formulated in light of its current and related conditions. Moreover, global complexities and the associated state of uncertainty highlights the importance of anticipation, prediction, and more efficient and effective action in times of crises. These include rapid developments in emerging technologies, currency collapses and financial disruptions, the Russo- Ukrainian war, and the climate change crisis.
Good governance requires a proper dissemination of information supported with free circulation as well. This is to facilitate decision-making. Besides, flexibility, inclusiveness, preparedness, responsiveness, responsibility, cooperation, and transparency are essential factors in achieving good governance and in combating corruption.
Artificial intelligence, awareness-raising, capacity-building, and youth empowerment all play an important role in having good governance. Furthermore, there is a gap in research and studies related to the link between governance and digital transformation.
