Potential and Pitfalls for Inclusive Green Growth
Public–private partnerships have become increasingly popular in global and Dutch development cooperation. The Dutch Directorate General for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation co-finances a substantial number of public–private partnerships in the fields of water and sanitation, food security and renewable energy, to enhance access to water, food and energy and thus contribute to economic development and poverty alleviation. Partnerships bring the private sector, civil society and public authorities together, a combination that is expected to improve public services delivery, enhance local representation and stimulate efficiency.
This study assesses the potential contribution of public– private partnerships to Inclusive Green...

Private investment in infrastructure has been on the rise in recent years and PPPs are increasingly being considered an important vehicle to close the infrastructure gap. It was for this reason that the SADC ministers of Infrastructure in 2010 mandated the SADC Secretariat to establish a 3P network for the SADC region.

A Continental Perspective
This study is a product of the Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic (AICD), a project designed to expand the world’s knowledge of physical infrastructure in Africa. The AICD provides a baseline against which future improvements in infrastructure services can be measured, making it possible to monitor the results achieved from donor support. It also offers a solid empirical foundation for prioritizing investments and designing policy reforms in Africa’s infrastructure sectors.
The focus of the AICD country reports is on benchmarking sector performance and quantifying the main financing and efficiency gaps at the country level. These reports are particularly relevant to national policy makers and development partners working on...
