Public–private partnerships for agribusiness development: A review of international experiences

Published by: FAO

pdf thumb


To improve understanding of both the potential benefits and the challenges of agri-PPPs, the FAO has gathered 70 case studies from 15 developing countries along with evidence from field-based support to PPP initiatives for agribusiness development in Central America and Southeast Asia. This publication provides a review of this wealth of practical information. Its primary objective is to draw lessons that can be used to provide guidance to FAO member countries on how to establish effective partnerships with the private sector to mobilize support for agribusiness development. Particular attention is therefore given to analysing the existing enabling environment for agri-PPPs, the expected benefits to be achieved from these partnerships, the roles and functions of the partners, major challenges encountered, and the performance and development outcomes that resulted. Attention is also given to defining the types of public skill and the institutions required to support agri-PPPs and the circumstances under which PPPs are likely to be the best modality for achieving agribusiness outcomes.
