The global development community has articulated many collective aspirations in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aimed at transforming the world. Given the complicated issues that accompany globalization, State and non-State actors continue to explore the utility of public-private cooperation mechanisms. Public-private cooperation initiatives strive for global governance mechanisms involving oversight by all of the actors and operating frameworks that include multiple states, intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, private sector companies and prominent individuals.
This book examines global public private initiatives which attempt to form new institutions to achieve cooperation objectives in contrast to traditional PPP models which rely on contract arrangements between governments and service providers. Students of these initiatives from many interconnected disciplines, including law, finance, international relations and governance will find this introduction to this growing field of development cooperation timely and informative.
