Covers a checklist for formal public private partnerships spanning: rationale, design, implementation, sustainability, and the roles for brokers at each stage. Lessons are taken across four case studies: Ghana, Indonesia, Rwanda, and Uganda. The report focuses on how to build capacity to respond to changes in complex market systems, dealing with differences and conflicts and proactive approaches to public accountability and transparency. It looks at the actions of everyone involved in the supply chain to prioritize farmer ownership, align incentives of partners, build trust and manage risk. An essential read on public private engagement with respect to global supply chains.
