The private sector’s role in inclusive development


This report is divided into two parts that examine the question of the private sector’s potential contribution to
inclusive economic development models from a global, continental and domestic perspective. Part One (Chapters
One and Two) focuses on global and continental trends regarding the role of business in creating inclusive economic environments, and the lessons that can be learned from these experiences. Part Two (Chapters Three, Four, Five and Six) focuses on the South African case, highlighting the challenges faced and opportunities available in creating a  sustainable social pact between business and the government, homing in on the role of the private sector in making the agricultural and mining sectors more inclusive, and looking at a case study of a public– private partnership in the form of the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP)
