Extrait du chapitre [en anglais] :
In this chapter, we explain why crowding in· private finance is now an unavoidable component when designing finacing for global development agreements. After looking at investment needs (section 1), new blending finance facilities (section 2), and public-private partnerships (section 3), we highlight the need and opporttirrtties. for financial partners to bend their learning curve, particularly with respect to successfully mobilizing private sector investment (section 4). We then examine policy implications and look at possible donor interventions that could help narrow the gap between the high expectations placed on public-pri¥ci.te partnerships and what they actually achieve (section 5). We conclude with our key messages.
