With Janelle Plummer. Chapter 7 in Focusing Partnerships: A Sourcebook for Municipal Capacity-Building in Public-Private Partnerships. London, UK: Earthscan Publications LTD. (for UNDP, DFID University of Birmingham and GHK International).
Private-Public Partnerships are the way forward for urban development in the South as well as in the North. This volume provides an immensely valuable, practical sourcebook on how such partnerships can be developed in ways that meet the needs of the poor and reduce social exclusion.
Chapter 7 builds on Steve Waddell’s analysis of the distinctive competencies of business, government and civil society as guiding rationales for the formation and design of partnerships.
