Public-private partnerships for development continue to play a prominent role in American global development policy and strategy. President Barack Obama’s administration has prioritized leveraging private sector investment for development. The President’s Global Development Council — a special advisory group comprised of public, private, academic and nongovernmental representatives — continues to emphasize galvanizing the private sector and supporting new and existing PPPs.
