Danida's Public-Private Partnership Programme
In May 2004, Danida launched a Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) Programme to develop the private sector in developing countries.
The overall objective of the PPP programme was to contribute to reducing poverty by promoting economic growth and social development in developing countries. The immediate objective of the Danida PPP programme was to promote public private partnerships by engaging the private sector in ensuring better working and living conditions in developing countries, by enhancing corporate social responsibility integrated in core business activities and increasing opportunities for investments and increased competitiveness through innovation.
Since its initiation in 2004, the PPP Programme has undergone a number of changes as regards both management procedures and the supporting programme framework including the responsibility for assessing project applications. This has created a demand for a common platform for assessment of the supported projects across embassies and Danida headquarters. This evaluation study feed into this process.
