Throughout the Commonwealth, governments are under unprecedented pressure to deliver better public services and sustainable growth, despite increasing strains on national budgets. 

Commonwealth Governance and Growth 2014 examines the various models by which the private sector can partner with governments to help them achieve these aims, from classic public–private partnership (PPP) models through to social entrepreneurship and impact investing. 

It brings together various perspectives and experiences of public–private partnering for national development from experts and senior officials within government, industry, academia and the development community. 

Includes 53 comprehensive country profiles and articles on: 

  • Social and physical infrastructure investment
  • Models of strategic partnership between the private and public sectors
  • Leadership, human resources and state capacity
  • Regulatory, legal and taxation issues

Published for the Commonwealth Secretariat by Nexus Strategic Partnerships.
