The political leadership should ensure public awareness of the relative costs, benefits and risks of Public-Private Partnerships. Popular understanding of Public-Private Partnerships requires active consultation and engagement with stakeholders as well as involving end-users in defining the project and subsequently in monitoring service quality.

According to the findings of a recent IOE company survey, a determining factor for companies is the need to engage employees in the transition, rather than “herding them through it,” To succeed, employees can be offered pathways to professional and personal improvement–and they should be engaged in the process of change, rather than merely being informed that change is coming, he says. “The workforce is often more agile than employers think, and keen to participate in skilling and upskilling. A study from Accenture, for instance, shows that more than 65% of workers say it is important to develop their skills to work with intelligent machines in the next 3-5 years.” How best can local companies and institutions prepare for this eventuality?

Universal health coverage (UHC) is based on the principle that individuals and communities have the right to access comprehensive and good quality health services without experiencing financial hardship. Given the rights-based approach that lies at the core of this concept, UHC has become pivotal to achieving the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda. It calls for partnerships among multiple stakeholders in a concerted and coordinated approach—a call to work together despite potentially conflicting governance structures, expertise, primary interests and resources—moved by the common value of making the world a healthier and safer place. What are the best practices exhibited in the LREB and what lessons can be learnt?
