In 2014, Concordia’s P3 Intelligence division will expand. We recognize the need for research that helps stakeholders identify and capitalize on opportunities for partnership. As such, we are eager to further develop Concordia’s presence as an organization that equips the public, private, and nonprofit sectors with the tools to engage in P3s. To highlight opportunities for large-scale impact, the Concordia Index will be expanded to include 20 new countries to the ranking. To better understand the contributing factors to “gaps” identified in the Index, case studies that analyze youth unemployment and entrepreneurship in Colombia and Vietnam will be released in March and May.
Because of the unique nature of individual P3s, what works for one partnership may in fact hinder another. To that end, Concordia is developing case studies that critically analyze three P3s. Through this “deep dive” into particularly impactful and innovative P3s, we hope to tease out best practices that can be used across sectors and partnership models.
“The expansion of the Index and the development of case studies demonstrate Concordia’s dedication to not only highlight P3 opportunities, but also to understand the mechanics of successful P3s,” says Natalie Pregibon, Director of P3 Intelligence. “While P3s are increasingly recognized as effective ways to address the world’s challenges, stakeholders still often lack the information necessary to engage in sustainable P3s. Concordia strives to meet this information gap by providing stakeholders with high-quality research products that help inform partnerships for social and economic impact.”
Through its research and convening power, we hope to continue to evolve into an organization with the capability to help maximize the impact of public-private partnerships globally.
