To connect the human dimension and the environment in the development process, there was a growing interest in sustainable development, which aims at balancing the economic system without depleting natural resources, considering environmental security and preserve natural resources for future generations. The environment must, therefore, be the basis of development, as the waste and depletion of natural human resources, which are the basis of any agricultural or artificial activity, will have detrimental effects on development in general. The concept of sustainable development emerged as a result of the neglect of the development of environmental aspects. It was necessary to find a new developmental philosophy to help overcome the problems. Therefore, achieving the goals of sustainable development requires simultaneous progress in four dimensions, economic, human, environmental and social. There is a close link between these different dimensions, and the actions taken in one of them will enhance the other objectives. Therefore to achieve this simultaneous progress it was important to adopt the idea of good governance. Therefore, the idea of the relationship between sustainable development and good governance in the world began after the issuance of the report of the United Nations Development Program which intended on the dimensions of sustainable development based on comprehensive human development based upon links between the levels of political, economic, social and environmental activities; and based on the principle of participation and long-term planning in fields education, environment, politics, economy, society etc. This requires a measure of justice, accountability, and legitimacy in representation and devoting democracy, which is known as the elements of good governance. Thus the strong relationship between the issues of sustainable development and reform of the government or what has known the principles and the dimensions of good governance to turn economic growth into sustainable development. In addition to what is mentioned above, the implementation of any comprehensive development plan in Qatar requires a transparent, consensus , participatory and fair governance system based on the rule of law, civil, political, economic and social protection; and based on efficient and accountable public administration that ensure the participation of the private sector, civil society in decision-making. In addition to that to act upon building a more responsive and accountable government; and enable democracy to match with international and domestic developments; this is through the context of reducing the role of the government and adopting an enabling approach of civil society and private sector participation, a series of economic, social and political reforms that should be implemented to meet the demands of democracy and transparency, thus, to promote the principles of good governance to achieve the goals of sustainable development. Keywords: Sustainable Development, Qatar, Good Governance
