Description

The potentially transformative role of the private sector in addressing development challenges has been repeatedly pressed at UN fora where “scalable and transformational partnerships for development” have been promoted. This coincides with an increasing interest on the part of the private sector to invest in developing countries, which are seen as having the greatest potential for future economic growth. The 2013 Human Development Report referred to the rise of emerging markets as “unprecedented in its speed and scale.” As a consequence, there has been a significant shift in mind-set around the role of the private sector in reducing poverty and a blurring of roles among players in the development sector.
