Public-Private Partnerships: Training and Coordination in Disasters
- 95 Downloads
A public-private partnership (P3) is an organizational arrangement that can vary widely across contexts, particularly in disaster. According to The National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP), as well as the US Government Accountability Office (GAO), a public-private partnership can be defined as “a contractual arrangement … between public and private sector partners” (GAO 1999). This is a typical definition, but in disaster contexts, public-private partnerships are not always contractual. P3s can be thought of as cross-sectoral coalitions that serve particular disaster-related needs that are not met effectively by any single sector. Involved partners can include entities from the public, private, or the nonprofit sector. North America, Asia, the Pacific, and Africa have witnessed a resurgent interest in P3s of all varieties in the last decade. Interest in this type of organization has been mixed across Europe and South America.
