English term or phrase: Decision-making has shifted from government to governance.
The texts continues so: Governance entails a system of governmental and non governmental organizations in which the state is seen just as a first among equals.

Explanation:
Creo que es algo así como

La toma de decisiones ya no sólo es competencia del gobierno sino de un espectro más amplio compuesto por organizaciones gubernamentales y no gubernamentales que actúan como pares y para quienes el estado se encuentra en primer lugar.

Lack of more context makes the real understanding of this phrase more difficult. Governance means not only the government bodies but also those organizations that have acquired a similar importance for decision making. Anyway, I think you have to paraphrase this paragraph for translation purposes.

Explanation:
La idea parece ser que la toma de decisiones ya no depende exclusivamente del Poder Ejecutivo, sino que es compartida entre todos los poderes que gobiernan y las organizaciones no gubernamentales, con lo cual el gobierno es considerado el primero entre un grupo de iguales.

Espero haber sido de ayuda!
Suerte! :)

Explanation:
I'd suggest: "La decisiones han dejado de ser tomadas por por un gobierno centralizado, para ser transferidas hacia organizaciones descentralizadas".
Governance is an art which implies sharing power and empowering other organizations on the decision-making process.

governance - gobernabilidad


Explanation:
gobernabilidad o "un buen gobierno" se refieren en sociologia moderna a un nuevo concepto en cuanto a profundizacion de la democracia y legitimidad de decisiones gubernamentales.
Sugiero, con cambios necesarios en cuanto a la estructura gramatical : Actualmente, la toma de decisiones ya no es tanto responsabilidad y prerogativa de los gobiernos, sino mas bien esta estrechamente relacionada con el concepto de gobernabilidad.

Hope it helps!
