Public-Private Partnerships in Development
Call for Papers Date:
The Conference attempts to address the issues and challenges pertaining to Public-Private Partnerships.It hopes to bring together scholars, government officers, private sector participants and civil society representatives in developing various propositions on the best way to attain optimal Public-Private Partnership and address issues of allocative efficiencies, transparency and accountability.
Public -Private Partnerships are increasingly seen as a favourable method in alleviating problems of underdevelopment and in spurring developed economies to create new capacities for growth.The partnership is a contractual agreement between governments, private sector players and civil society players in the provisions of services and products that, traditionally have been provided by the public sector.There are obvious advantages as it allows an optimal allocation of resources through sharing of risks and rewards and in so doing provides better "value for money" for tax payers.Public-Private Partnerships will also generate synergies through harnessing different resources, resolving market failures and helping the public sector incorporate market and societal elements that are useful in delivering public services.
Date of Conference:15th -16th January 2009
