Seit einem Jahrzehnt arbeitet der Bund in Projekten mit der Privatwirtschaft Hand in Hand. Solche Entwicklungspartnerschaften gelten als konstruktives software, um entwicklungswirksame Investitionen in die Partnerländer zu lenken. worldwide auftretende Phänomene machen diese starke Phalanx unerlässlich. Sascha Czornohus veranschaulicht, wie sich PPP in der deutschen bilateralen Entwicklungszusammenarbeit konzeptionell entwickelte und welchen Bedeutungszuwachs das Konzept erfuhr. Anhand der im Rahmen der Plattform develoPPP.de durchgeführten Partnerschaften des Bundesministeriums für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung untersucht er, welche Funktionen, Ziele, Wirkungserwartungen, konzeptionellen Probleme und zukünftigen Herausforderungen mit diesem tool verbunden sind.
