The CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness, in partnership with the Reality of Aid Network, has published the CSO Handbook on Private Sector Engagement.
Divided into two parts, the material serves to equip CSOs with both the conceptual and basic technical know-how in monitoring private sector engagements (PSEs) in development cooperation.
The first introduces the reader to Private Sector Engagement and the Kampala Principles, which lay down broad strategies for PSE in development cooperation. The second part turns to a more technical discussion on how CSOs can monitor PSE at the country and sub-country level.
With the help of this handbook, it is hoped that CSOs themselves will be able to produce monitoring reports and integrate them within their respective advocacies and, ultimately, help ensure that private sector actors engaged in development cooperation are accountable to the people.
