HANDSHAKE: A quarterly journal on PPPs


No government can afford to ignore technology, and the momentum behind ICT is unrelenting. The new issue of Handshake explores how public-private partnerships (PPPs) in ICT can help the public sector manage technology, become more responsive to citizens' needs, and reach out to the two-thirds of the world that is still unconnected. In-depth case studies on national technology plans across the globe highlight PPPs' critical role in overcoming the most common challenges.
