Leading question for companies, governments and NGOs is what an ‘optimal partnership portfolio’ should look like. When to enter and when to exit specific partnerships? Do multinationals need partnerships in case they enter developing countries? Do ‘fragile’ states present different challenges to effective partnerships than relatively stable developing countries? How to deal with public accountability issues in partnerships?
The Resource Centre will provide overviews of evaluation protocols, databases of actual partnerships and will regularly report on the ‘state of partnerships’ around the world.
