The past 15 years witnessed a proliferation of public-private partnerships (PPPs) between the private sector and the international development organizations. In a retrospective assessment, this report examines the main concerns over the potential of PPPs to bring about inclusive development in three export-oriented agricultural sectors: the cocoa sector in Indonesia, the horticultural sector in Kenya, and the coffee sector in Rwanda. Devex Impact published an article, “Can global value chain PPPs reach the poor? Latest lessons learned” on February 27, 2015, on the report. https://www.devex.com/news/can-global-value-chain-ppps-reach-the-poor-latest-lessons-learned-85590 A panel presented research findings on USAID-supported partnerships and upgrading trajectories experienced in the cocoa sector in Indonesia, the coffee sector in Rwanda, and the horticulture sector in Kenya. This research examines what historical PPPs can teach us about how to use this approach to benefit the poor. www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4PmA6ZXyn8
