Establishing Public Private Partnerships: Lessons Learned from the Global South
The final report from a South-South knowledge exchange event in the area of Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). The Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar (RGoZ) and the World Bank, in collaboration with the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), organised a seminar designed to connect and establish a network among African and Asian countries working with PPPs. The participating countries are all at different stages of their ‘PPP evolution’ - representatives from India, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania and Zanzibar came together to share lessons from positive and negative PPP experiences, and to identifying good practices. The seminar took place on the 25th of May 2015 and hosted around 40 participants from countries and institutions working with PPPs. Participants included PPP practitioners from the participating countries as well as academics, development partners (World Bank, UN agencies and bilateral donors) and the private sector.
