Public Private Engagement in the Global Partnership: Fit for Partnering?

By Global Partnership

The untapped potential of public-private engagement for development presents a need to develop innovative modalities for effective development partnerships. Recognising this need, the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation hosted, “Public Private Engagement in the GPEDC: Fit for Partnering?” at the European Development Days in Brussels on 7 June 2017. The session presented key outcomes from the Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership in Nairobi. A multi-stakeholder panel discussed incentives for the private sector to engage in partnerships with other development actors such as governments, civil society and academia, among other important questions.

The session was jointly organised by the Global Partnership, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Co-operation and Development, DEVCO.
