PPPLab Day, 30 November: Achieving the Catalytic Potential of PPPs for Transformational Change


On 30 November, our SNV colleagues Jan Ubels and Floortje Jacobs - as part of PPPLab - are organising a practical day of exchange, application and design for those working in Public-Private-Partnerships (PPPs).

PPPs catalyse transformational change, but certainly not all the time. What does it mean for a PPP to deliberately target far-reaching behavioural transformation and systemic change? During this day, PPP practitioners will explore what targeting transformation implies for ambitions, strategies and collaboration. A day of working with ideas and tools will be fed by experiences – smooth and tough - from fellow practitioners who have set the bar high and are trying to take that leap. As always with the PPPLab, this is a day built for structured, fun exchange between practitioners generating actionable insights. Plenary discussions as well as practical workshops will be part of the program.

The event is free of charge and will take place at New World Campus, The Hague. Interested? Please register through info@ppplab.org. For more information and the full program, visit the PPPLab website.

The PPPLab Food & Water is a four-year action research and joint learning initiative (2014-2018) that looks at the relevance, effectiveness and quality of public-private partnerships (PPPs). PPPLab is commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is driven and implemented by a consortium of SNV, The Partnerships Resource Centre, Aqua for All, and Centre for Development Innovation of Wageningen UR.
