Public-private partnerships (PPP) can be defined (among other definitions) as "a long term contract between a private party and government entity, for providing a public asset or service, in which the private party bears significant risk and management responsibility, and remuneration is linked to performance". This learning note focuses on a broader model in which public and private sector actors directly or indirectly collaborate in establishing, strengthening or scaling up sanitation businesses to market sanitation goods and services to households. Public-private collaboration in this context aims to promote sustainable development, production and distribution through commercially viable and accountable business models.

Abstract

Public-private partnerships (PPP) can be defined (among other definitions) as "a long term contract between a private party and government entity, for providing a public asset or service, in which the private party bears significant risk and management responsibility, and remuneration is linked to performance". This learning note focuses on a broader model in which public and private sector actors directly or indirectly collaborate in establishing, strengthening or scaling up sanitation businesses to market sanitation goods and services to households. Public-private collaboration in this context aims to promote sustainable development, production and distribution through commercially viable and accountable business models.
