Public-Private Partnerships for Urban Poor in Ahmedabad

This article examines public-private partnerships for the development of the urban poor, based on our experience of the Slum Networking Project in Ahmedabad. We examine three issues. The first concerns the reasons that impede public-private partnerships. The second is the tardy progress that the central and state governments have made in providing housing and employment to the urban poor. Why should the corporate sector join hands with government organisations and NGOs for the development of the urban poor? This is the third issue we discuss in this article.
