What makes this project unique?

This is a four-year initiative,involving all stakeholders.We make the notion of “governance” tangible,
measurable and discussable, using the LocalGovernance Barometer;We work holistically, involving all aspects of 
governance and stakeholders;We engage actively with all partners, at national,
provincial and local levels, who deal with aspectsof good governance;We take a long-term process approach with
communities (3-4 years) to achieve an attitudechange;We stimulate active citizen engagement;
We emphasise self-assessment to stimulate local
ownership;We provide capacity development support that is
demand-driven;We have high level of flexibility to adapt to local
and provincial requirements.
