Good Governance



Good governance is essential for running a successful National Scout Organization and creating a positive image of Scouting within a country.

As weaker governance processes often make it difficult to sustain the delivery of high-quality programmes to youth members and retain adult leaders, WOSM aims to improve the capacities of National Scout Organizations through continuous collaboration with their leadership teams worldwide. In this Service area, you will find support for effective decision-making in national boards, strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation, institutional matters (development and review of national constitutions), risk, change and financial management.
