The international development community is increasingly looking to the private sector as key partner for achieving sustainable development results.

The North-South Institute, in collaboration with the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC), has released a new report which identifies emerging themes in bilateral donor policies around the private sector. It compares and contrasts donor approaches, unpacks old and new assumptions, and sheds light on the many ways in which donors are now seeking to partner with the private sector.
