Governance Glossary


This glossary provides definitions of key terms used in urban and regional governance topics, particularly in public policy, land, climate change, and urban management. It facilitates an understanding of basic terminology for academics, researchers, and practitioners. The glossary is designed to provide a foundational vocabulary for anyone new to the field of governance. While it is not an exhaustive list of all the terms used in this context, it does include those terms that are used the most and perhaps understood the least.
