The role of
good governance in ensuring local development is not worth mentioning.
This study dealt with the performance of good governance in Naeder Adet
woreda of Tigiray Regional State. Specifically, the study assessed the
performance of good governance from perspective of transparency and
responsiveness. The study was conducted using 182 household heads that
were selected via convenience sampling. Furthermore, focused group
discussion, interview and secondary data were used to gather relevant
data. The study finding indicated that the performance of good
governance pertaining to transparency and responsiveness was found
dissatisfactory and much is left to be done. The prime factors that
inhibited the performance of good governance in the woreda were, among
others, corruption, weak public education, weak monitoring and
evaluation system, low implementation capacity and low coordination
among stake holders. Thus, if good land governance is to be ensured, the
woreda government should work on tackling the above bottlenecks by
setting clear guidelines and service standards, empowering civic
engagement on monitoring and evaluating service delivery process.
