Governance at the macro level covers all aspects of exercising authority through formal and informal institutions in managing a state's resources for sustainable development. Thus, the elements of macro governance include the creation a favourable climate for economic growth, transparent budgetary and financial management, transparency in the political process, and a voice for all citizens, while providing them with effective social and environmental services.
