The study begins by introducing the Business Partners for Development initiative which studies whether tri-sector - public, private, civil society - partnerships are an effective mechanism for providing water and sanitation services to the poor and the context in which it was launched and how work has progressed in the three years since its start. The authors, a multi-disciplinary team of experts, considered what we know about when and how tri-sector partnerships are effective at providing water and sanitation to the poor, and in building systems in which the poor have a sustainable voice.
