[Draft for Discussion] A Guide to Community Engagement for Public-Private Partnerships
Jun 28, 2019
Good community engagement strengthens PPPs by giving communities voice, enfranchising and mobilizing them to enhance positive impacts while reducing potential negative impacts. This new guide explains how to engage with the communities that will be affected by a PPP project. Aimed at improving development outcomes, the guide provides practical, systematic advice for PPP practitioners. It covers the full project cycle and the engagement of the public partner—the government’s contracting authority—and the private partner procured to deliver the project. Countries can adapt the global guidelines to their own circumstances, creating a customized, country-specific guide to community engagement in PPPs.
