The Business Leaders Caucus of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation is pleased to announce the release of four new case studies that illustrate the Kampala Principles in action.

Set in Bangladesh, Colombia, the Philippines and Uganda, the case studies share diverse and inspiring examples of how co-operation between the private and public sectors and development partners creates tangible impact in the areas of COVID-19 emergency response, women’s health, employee well-being, and sustainable agriculture. The cases feature voices from both an international and domestic level.

The Kampala Principles were launched in 2019 to enhance the effectiveness of development partnerships with the private sector at the country level and globally. Each case study takes a detailed look at how the five Kampala Principles apply and offers concrete examples for how leaders can integrate these principles of inclusive country ownership, results and targeted impact, inclusive partnership, transparency and accountability, and leaving no one behind into their own partnerships.

“To build stronger and more effective partnerships with the private sector, we have to demonstrate that these partnerships are inclusive, generate business returns, and have a real development impact,” says Thomas Gass, Chair of the Global Partnership’s Steering Committee. “The Kampala Principles are a beacon in this regard, and these case studies are critical to the conversation about how to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through private sector partnerships.”

The creation of these case studies was generously supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). Germany leads the Global Partnership’s Action Area on effective private sector engagement in development co-operation and the implementation of the Kampala Principles.
