About this item

This volume brings together 22 essays on key aspects of designing, implementing, operating, and evaluating public-private partnerships in emerging and developing economies, to contribute towards their development and growth. Economics, management, sociology, and other researchers based around the world illustrate the key role of public-private partnerships in these economies, as well as cross-country diversity in terms of their institutional and governance framework, strategic resources, and business environment. They address recent trends in public-private partnerships; public policy practices and social entrepreneurship; implementation and evaluation of public-private partnerships; empirical analysis of public-private partnership determinants; identification of constraints, triggers, and determinants to implementation; guiding principles for public-private partnership sustainability; and lessons learned and emerging best practices from case studies. They describe the key definitions, concepts, risks, and tensions relevant to the institutionalization of public-private partnerships, and the drivers of investment in these countries, as well as the importance of the governance of the public-private partnership framework; making public-private partnerships work for the poor and application to local communities, agricultural transformation, and social and commercial infrastructure; the environment setup and social entrepreneurship as success factors to support and streamline public-private partnership implementation, including examples from Pakistan, Kosovo, and Africa; and implementation in service-based sectors and infrastructure, a theory-based approach to evaluation, and the relationship between project characteristics and macroeconomic and institutional factors affecting the degree of private sector participation in infrastructure public-private partnerships in developing countries, with studies of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Nigeria, Senegal, Turkey, India, and Central Asia.
