The Recordkeeping for Good Governance Toolkit for French-speaking Africa


The good governance toolkit was developed in 2007 by PARBICA (Pacific regional branch of ICA) to sensitize governments and decision-makers in the region to the importance of records and archives management for good governance. The project aims to adapt the Pacific approach to the francophone world, in particular French speaking Africa.
