National Conference On

Public Private Partnerships


for
Inclusive Development

India International Centre, New Delhi


November 20, 2008

Introduction
Of the world’s 6.4 billion people, about 2.6 billion live on less than US$2 a day. They not only lack access to clean
water, electricity, health services, sanitation etc. but also sustainable means of earning income. They are caught in a
vicious circle of poverty where low income, unemployment and negligible wealth creation make them vulnerable.
They need support to come out of this situation. This requires integrated approach wherein government, community
and the private sector strive to build win-win inclusive business models.

Planning Commission has recognized Public Private Partnerships (PPP) as a strategy for achieving Vision 2020. Even
State Governments have taken initiatives to promote PPPs. Rajasthan has formally launched a Viability Gap Funding
Scheme for promoting PPPs in the Social Sector. Sulabh, Narayana Hrudaylaya, e-Choupal, Project Shakti etc.
understood that needs of poor are different and forged partnerships to create win-win models.

While the scope of working in these markets is huge there are constraints in the way wherein limited market
information, lack of community preparedness and effective facilitators, ineffective regulatory environments, missing
knowledge and skills and restricted access to financial products and services have to be factored in to design
appropriate strategies. Moreover, these markets requires players to adapt to products and processes, invest to
remove market constraints, leverage the strengths of the poor, combine
resources and capabilities with other stakeholders and engage in policy
dialogue with governments.

The conference would understand the concerns and issues of various


partners involved in PPP; learn from the success and failure of various
initiatives, and the way forward. We would need to answer the
following key questions towards developing win-win partnerships for
inclusive development models.

1. What can public private partnerships do for the poor?


2. How can poor become equal partners?
3. Can Inclusive Development offer a way out of poverty?
