Abstract

Good governance is perhaps the single most important factor in eradicating poverty and promoting development.”– Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations.This study will investigate the challenges of good governance and mitigating strategies in Oromia. The major objective is to identify the level of good governance with respect to its founding pillar factors. The key factors of good governance considered in the study will be accountability (including structures and mechanisms for transparency, disclosure, and redress), citizen participation, political and bureaucratic responsiveness with capacity to meet emerging issues and needs, alignment with rule of law and attunements to principles of just and orderly operations, will and means to control of corruption, government strategic and operational effectiveness and efficiency, trustworthy elected and appointed leadership, equity building initiatives, consensus development orientation, and quality service culture. The study will follow a survey, focus group and interview design, with evaluative quantitative and qualitative analyses. The data will be collected from four selected cities i.e. Adama, Jimma, Shashemenne, and Nekemte. Analyses will be based on primary data generated through a semi-structured questionnaire for each key factors of good governance. In-depth interviews will be arranged with purposefully selected higher officials and focus group discussion will be conducted with purposefully selected professionals. Survey data will provide analyses of variants that enable segmentation of the data responses based on good governance indicators and demographic and other contextual factors. Multiple regression models were specified, estimated and evaluated. Further to explore the significant differences among the selected cities, ANOV analysis will be employed. The in-depth interview and focus groups data will subject to thematic analyses and triangulated with the findings from survey analyses. Findings will be presented in a fashion that exemplifies both rigor of research, responsiveness to research questions and high relevance to policy makers and executives.
