The Center for Strategic and International Studies held event marking the release of a new report, “Seizing the Opportunity in Public Private Partnerships: Strengthening Capacity at the State Department, USAID, and MCC,” on November 1, 2011. In a development landscape changed by globalization, the growth of global philanthropy and tightening foreign assistance budgets, U.S. development strategy must adapt to better reflect the times. Experts discussed the issues and opportunities in working with the private sector on development and suggested ways in which the U.S. government can take fuller advantage of these partnerships.
