A summary of key points raised during a SDC e+i Network discussion on working with the private sector.

Week one focus:

  1. Motivations for engaging with the private sector (mainly because of leverage, scale and sustainability)
  2. Finding the right partner (common goals; motivation to work with us; potential for leverage)
  3. What elements made the collaboration successful and effective (readiness for accepting diverging working environments; flexibility; clarification of interest and roles).

The summary is informed by examples from 36 cases, within more than 130 email posts.

Week two and week three are also available.
