Public-private partnerships can, and do, lead to transformational change. But usually they do not. PPPLab will explore what it really takes to use PPPs for transformational change during the PPPLab Day on November 30, 2017 in the New World Campus in The Hague.

How to stimulate change in the institutions and regulations that shape food and water systems, as well as transform how these institutions and the individuals in them work together? And what changes are needed to create deep, widespread public goods which harness sensible business approaches? These key questions form the basis for the day’s exploration.

Who is this for?

Anybody working in or with a PPP that wants to bring about deep systemic or behavioural change in food or water systems: PPP practitioners, investors and donors, companies, advisors.

What to expect

A day designed to make new ideas actionable, and help you up your game in your PPP.

Frank plenary sharing of efforts at transformational change: real pitfalls and what’s possible.

Extensive, interactive workshops with diverse international speakers and cases, allowing for deep exploration of topics and taking joint understanding a step further, including:

  • Local government and partnerships for transformational change, with Charles Abugre of the Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) of the Government of Ghana
