3:30 PM-5:00 PM
Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre - Room 304
Public-Private Partnerships
The workshop aims to bring together research papers and case studies for oral presentation on the issue of how do the features and dynamics of public-private-partnerships affect the implementation of policies pursuing sustainability goals. Public-private-partnerships are an increasing presence in the implementation of more sustainable business practices, technologies, products, market-operation principles, and projects for social improvement. They take different forms and seem to be ‘in-flux? with changing actor-structures, actor-roles and actor-drivers. These have yet unexplored consequences for implementation results. The workshop aims to enable policy recommendations on how to boost the effective use of PPPs in implementing sustainability goals.
