The global development community has articulated many collective aspirations in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aimed at transforming the world. Given the complicated issues that accompany globalization, State and non-State actors continue to explore the utility of public–private cooperation mechanisms. Public– private cooperation initiatives strive for global governance mechanisms involving oversight by all of the actors and operating frameworks that include multiple states, intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, private sector companies and prominent individuals.

This book examines global public–private initiatives which attempt to form new institutions to achieve cooperation objectives in contrast to traditional PPP models which rely on contract arrangements between governments and service providers. Students of these initiatives from many interconnected disciplines, including law, finance, international relations and governance will find this introduction to this growing field of development cooperation timely and informative.
Critical Acclaim
‘From weather risk to epidemic management, from climate change to education and the digital economy, equitable and effective development needs new institutional formats. In this comprehensive yet accessible work, a master architect of international public-private partnerships shares his craft. Dr. Nielander explains how public-private partnerships have evolved towards today’s institutional design of choice for international cooperation and how to design ones to fit the needs of tomorrow’s challenges.’
– Richard Wilcox, former UN Assistant Secretary General as founding Director-General African Risk Capacity and Co-founder and President of the Digital Equity Association

‘Having worked across the legal environment in the private, public and academic worlds, – and across many sectors – Dr. Nielander has a wealth of experience to draw on in treating the subject of public-private partnerships and the role that they can play in advancing development goals. This experience was no more visible than the fundamental work that Dr. Nielander did to establish GAVI as one of the premier global health institutions in the world. Given the ever-more complex challenges ahead, this book is very timely and will become the “go-to” resource for leaders, practitioners, and policy makers seeking to expand their toolkits for making progress in the post-COVID world.’
– Alice P. Albright, Global Partnership for Education

‘Progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals demands new forms of cooperation between public and private sector participants. The SDGs seek improvements across a multitude of topics, ranging from adaptation to climate change, to improved education, health and human rights frameworks. Dr. Nielander attempts to place the new era of multi-actor cooperation within an historical context and draws lessons that may be useful to public officials and students of global development, policy and law, alike.’
– Justice Ben Kioko, African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights
