Public-private partnerships can, and do, lead to transformational change. But usually they do not. On this day we will explore what it really takes to use PPPs for transformational change.
How to stimulate change in the institutions and regulations that shape food and water systems, as well as transform how these institutions and the individuals in them work together? And what changes are needed to create deep, widespread public goods which harness sensible business approaches? These key questions form the basis for the day’s exploration.
Who is this for?
Anybody working in or with a PPP that wants to bring about deep systemic or behavioural change in food or water systems: PPP practitioners, investors and donors, companies, advisors.
What to expect
