Guiding Principles on People-first Public-Private Partnerships in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
The Guiding Principles were finalised during 13th session of Working Party on PPPs, UN Economic Commission for Europe in Geneva, 25-27 March 2019.
The following document contains 10 guiding principles on people-first public-private partnerships in response to paragraph 48 of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development.
“People-first PPPs” can be perceived as a type of public-private partnerships (PPPs) designed to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and thereby to be “fit for purpose”. It is defined as an enhanced approach for PPPs that overcomes some of the weaknesses in the way the traditional PPP model has been implemented. PPPs are contract delivery tools for public infrastructure provision involving initial private financing.
