This section looks at what the impact of PPD is in more concrete terms. The results of some evaluations from PPD programs globally are presented, including the competitiveness payoffs in the Cambodian garment sector, the growth impact in Madagascar and the impact on infrastructure in Nosy Be and Fort Dauphin.
The section demonstrates the strong impact at the sector level. Research was done to find out whether there was a correlation between sector growth and dialogue between the public and private sector actors. 18 different sectors were researched and further research was carried out in two sectors in a relatively homogenous market of the Mediterranean region. A strong correlation was found between sector growth and the presence of PPDs. The study is available and can be downloaded from the PPD website: www.publicprivatedialogue.org
