The role of Private Public Partnerships in Agriculture

The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) partnered with us to identify key factors in driving the effectiveness of Private Public Partnerships in bringing sustained increases in income for smallholder farmers at scale and delivering positive development outcomes across rural communities. The project was intended to deliver: an understanding, grounded in evidence, of when and how Private Public Partnership (PPP) bring about positive development outcomes sustainably and at scale; a systematic and empirical approach to the analysis of PPP design and implementation in the agricultural sector; and an understanding of the role of brokers in the design and implementation of PPPs in agriculture that is inclusive of smallholders and delivers development benefits sustainably and at scale.
