The G5 Sahel countries face a lack of institutional, territorial and financial governance. Citizens are demanding more justice and public institutions that are in tune with their needs. They also wish to participate more in the democratic life of their country. A combination of administrative hold-ups, corruption and poor resource redistribution means that citizens have little confidence in their government. With the assistance of the States and the support of civil society the Alliance can help to reinforce the social contract at each territorial level.
The objectives to be achieved in this sector are as follows:
- Reinforcing the rule of law to offer better justice
- Improving administrative effectiveness
- Fostering citizens’ contribution to public policy development
- Improving management and cleansing public finances
