The background and objectives, research findings, and policy recommendations of the project are presented. It aimed to identify how far a cross-sector approach has been effective in addressing development concerns; capture and disseminate lessons learned, and make recommendations for companies, governments, civil society organisations and donor agencies working in Africa to assist them in establishing successful CSP initiatives for sustainable development.
The project's evidence was produced through two major and four lesser case studies of ongoing partnerships within Southern Africa. The case studies were situated in three sectors - education, agriculture and health - and were selected to represent partnerships at different stages of development and using different partnering arrangements.
