dc.description.abstractPurpose: The policy network managers play an important role of providing a vital link between government, the public, and the policy makers ensuring that policies are effectively communicated and implemented, and that public opinion is accurately reflected in the decisionmaking process. They also ensure coordination of the activities of stakeholders, supporting policy development, and helping to ensure that policy decisions are made in the best interests of the public. Therefore, to ensure that the public policy process outcomes are well achieved, the policy network manager’s roles must be well defined.
