Private sector engagement tool kit

November 16, 2014

A toolkit for effectively building and sustaining program partnerships with the private sector

Mercy Corps believes the private sector is one of the three key actors who contribute to our mission of building secure, productive and just communities. We engage the private sector in our work as program participants; as financial or material aid donors; and as program partners.

The Private Sector Engagement Toolkit — published in 2012 — is a resource for effectively building and sustaining program partnerships with the private sector. It outlines Mercy Corps’ strategy for engagement and profiles nine programs that successfully leveraged the services and expertise of a wide array of private sector partners in countries as diverse as Afghanistan, the Philippines, and Mongolia.
