Connecting the Dots in Private Sector Engagement

Kim Bettcher • 4 September 2019

"Connecting the Dots in Private Sector Engagement" introduces a model which proceeds through three interrelated phases of capacity building, engagement within and across sectors, and harvesting results. The phases present multiple facets of private sector engagement, allowing for partnerships with different types of business, on different objectives, in developing country contexts. This model has advantages over many other approaches in that it concentrates on longer-term change, prioritizes incentives and relationships over transactions, and connects stakeholder contributions with an outcomes-focused orientation.
