What we do
The UNECE develops international PPP standards to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These provide project models, templates and legal practices that can be adopted and used by governments to alleviate poverty, boost the economy and protect the environment. This work requires a global effort – which the UNECE coordinates, involving international specialist centres, project teams and the UNECE Business Advisory Board, working together to achieve real change on the ground.
Our meetings are the tool to gather best practices and disseminate them around the Globe.
Public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the delivery of public services have become a worldwide phenomenon and are generating great interest. PPPs combine the best of both worlds, but they also present a severe organizational and institutional challenge for the public sector. To address the challenge, the UNECE elaborates publications for policymakers, government officials and the private sector in the hope that all the parties to PPPs will benefit by examining best practices contained in the publications and ensuring their implementation.
International best practice models and standards
Our international best practice and model standards help governments building their capabilities to develop a successful pipeline of projects which will be replicable, promote access of essential services, equity, increase efficiency and ensure that people are at the heart of each PPP project.Learn More
