Introduction to People-first Public-Private Partnerships in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals raise a new challenge to Public-Private Partnerships, which have traditionally been designed as a “value for money” tool with very little regard to eradicating poverty and serving the poor. Overall, it can be said that not all Public-Private Partnerships are “fit for purpose” for the Sustainable Development Goals, nor is there a guarantee that the traditional Public-Private Partnerships model will lead to the successful achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. There has yet to be a model that is on the one hand transformative and on the other hand responds to the challenges of low and middle-income countries where arguably Public-Private Partnerships is needed the most.
