The BetterAid position paper on the private sector and development for the HLF4

Tue, 11/22/2011 - 00:00 -- content_manager02

The discussion on the private sector engagement in and for development is by itself very complex given the multitude of actors and interest that are at stake. The current interest in private sector engagement recognises the potential contribution of the private sector but should be part of a much larger approach that addresses development effectiveness[1] as the overall objective for our development efforts.

Drafted ahead of the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, this statement outlines principles for development effectiveness for private sector engagement, and Messages concerning engagement with the private sector in development.
