Are we asking the right questions? - Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in International Development, a CAFOD discussion paper, April 2013

UK aid uses public-private partnerships (PPPs) as one way of delivering its poverty reduction aims in developing and transition countries. These partnerships allow the private sector actor to make a profit, and in some cases the donor government also intends to make a profit from this method of delivering aid. This paper looks at some of the arguments for and against the use of PPPs in international development.
