Definition Source References

‘Modes of governance’ have been conceptualized in different ways, from hierarchies (state centric governance), networks or co- governance (a constellation of actors in varying partnership arrangements), markets (market-based instruments and incentives), voluntarism (non-binding agreements and instruments) and self- governance (including customary governance).
