For the last decade, the U.S. government has been a leader in developing innovative partnerships that seek to leverage a range of resources, expertise, and access from non-traditional actors. These public-private partnerships (PPPs) can be game-changing mechanisms for solving development problems.
In October 2011, CSIS published a report with extensive recommendations on how the U.S. Agency for International Development, the State Department, and the Millennium Challenge Corporation could strengthen their capacity to develop new PPPs. Now, further action is required to improve the practice of various stakeholders to form successful partnerships for development.
Building on the October 2011 report, CSIS and KPMG are partnering to examine the next steps for making PPPs a central component of development stakeholders planning and implementation. This forum will explore the leading edge of practice, so as to improve the impact and risk management of multi-stakeholder partnerships for development.
