ASSIST’s Private Sector Partnerships (PSP) brings together private companies and international organisations under a framework that creates innovative interventions which benefit our wide range of partners and beneficiaries. At PSP we harness the power and creativity of the private sector to design and implement projects that introduce new technologies, open markets, transfer knowledge, and create opportunities. We provide a proven way to make the private sector a driver of sustainable development. Despite the great potential developing countries and growing economies have, there remain significant risks should any company enter these areas, such as weak infrastructure and a lack of qualifications. Private Sector Partnerships minimizes these risks through providing financial and professional support, bolstering global partnerships with governments, NGOs, other private organizations, and communities.
