Abstract

 

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.

Key words: Good governance, transparency, responsiveness, land administration
