This IPPFAR Governance Manual seeks to facilitate a learning process that develops governing competencies of the members of the governing bodies or boards and senior management of IPPF Member Associations. At the end of this learning process, the learners will be able to discover and apply governance knowledge, skills, and practices in general, and IPPF principles of governance in particular, and govern their organization well so it achieves its strategic objectives and is able to improve the sexual and reproductive health status of the communities it serves. The manual is best used for the orientation of new board members and induction of senior managers.

The first edition of the manual was published in 2008 and the second edition in 2013. The second edition had introduced adult learning techniques such as experience sharing and case studies. The third edition further deepens this approach by providing step by step guidance on the delivery of each session using experiential learning approach.

The third edition is made possible by the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as part of the Leadership, Management & Governance (LMG) Project. In 2016, the LMG Project worked with the IPPF Africa Regional Office to produce this updated version of the manual.

We hope this edition will be helpful to the Member Associations in their quest for good governance and higher organizational performance.
