Public-Private Partnership in developing countries
IOB Study
April 3, 2014 By: IOB Image: IOB

Public-private partnerships (PPP’s) are a relatively recent phenomenon in international development cooperation. Current policy documents frequently refer to expectations regarding their potential contributions to global development goals. The growing international attention was firmly backed by the Netherlands government. However, there are still few diagnostic tools available to determine when and how PPP’s represent a preferred institutional arrangement. Moreover, the empirical evidence on the effectiveness and efficiency of PPP’s is notably scarce.

The study was published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on June 13, 2013.

The IOB study provides insights in the variety of PPP arrangements. A major conclusion derived from this review is that PPP evaluations focus on resource sharing but pay little attention to the risk-sharing and revenue distribution dimension of partnerships. This study was commissioned by the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department (IOB) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
