The Global Partnership aims at facilitating multi-stakeholder policy dialogue about challenges and opportunities to make private sector engagement (PSE) through development co-operation more effective. By the end of 2019, it aims to produce agreement on guidelines for such engagement and help development actors scale up public-private initiatives leveraged through development co-operation to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The purpose of this case study is to identify the opportunities and challenges of PSE through development co-operation in Bangladesh. It generates unique country-specific evidence: through a mapping of 240 PSE projects, a review of existing literature and interviews with various stakeholders.
