Skoch Smart Governance Award is an initiative recognising top performing States, government organisations and organisations working with the government, operating at local, state and national level in the area of Health, Education, Rural Development/Panchayati Raj, Urban Development, Finance, Agriculture, Transport, Security etc. It is a step towards recognising the best practices and models of governance for excellent and efficient implementation of programmes and services delivery.
States & Organisations offering best governance practices in an ecologically and socio-culturally sustainable way are requested to send their nominations. The organisations should demonstrate innovation in governance practices while adequately responding to local conditions. The governance model should be conducive for effective decision-making, problem solving, disputes and conflict management and actively produce measurable results in addressing key felt-needs and challenges. The organisation’s governance practices should also have the ability to adapt to future challenges and changing circumstances.
