The private sector has received growing recognition for its role in the development of the South. However, doubts persist as to its ability to meet the needs of growing populations. How do we align the prospects of the private sector with the Millenium Goals? How can development financial institutions improve their contribution? How do we integrate the private sector into the architecture of aid? A panel of financial experts, private sector agents, researchers and civil society addressed these questions. Through the example of urban public services, such as waste management, and the presentation of the report "International Finance Institutions and Development Through the Private Sector", this conference provided an opportunity to examine the impact of the private sector on development.
IFC’s partner for this event was Proparco and Coordination SUD. Speakers included:
l'Agence Français de Développement / Salle Jacques Alliot
5 Rue Roland Barthes, 75012 Paris, France
