Curious about the most recent debates and discourses among development practitioners working in the public and the private sector?
Tune in to this week’s episode focused on the latest perspectives regarding public-private partnerships, which are regarded as one of the more comprehensive means of tackling challenges to global development and facilitating conducive changes today. Some of the areas that private-public partnerships affect will include the following:
o The achievement and implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),
o Learning coalitions and partnerships,
o Gender inequality in education and at the workplace, and
