This report explores the future directions for public-private partnership (PPP) in relation to Korea’s international development co-operation, particularly official development assistance (ODA).
Since most PPP studies have approached the topic from the perspective of international development agency, it would be timely and meaningful to review the issue from that of the business, one of the major participants in PPP. Taking the business view into account, this new approach helps lay a more balanced and thus feasible foundation for partnership.
Based on the literature review on corporate social responsibility (CSR), this study (1) re-assesses the scope of CSR and PPP, (2) portraits the philanthropic activities of Korean companies, especially in developing countries, and (3) introduces normative models of corporate philanthropy, recently developed in Korea and internationally.
This report concludes with some suggestions in relation to three aspects of PPP: that is, scope, performance management, and partner selection.
With regard to the PPP scope, this report suggests to combine two current PPP programs which aim for the partnership with NGOs and the business respectively. This will not only make the current programs simpler, but also facilitate the cooperation within the private sector. It is also suggested that the new PPP program should consider and facilitate the cooperation with the government and NGOs in developing countries and should include capacity-building of the business in addition to co-sharing the financial burden required for PPP.
Regarding to performance management, this report proposes that the PPP program should embrace various aspects of PPP performance, which are defined by the PPP participants with different expectations, but should prioritize development rather than ODA or CSR.
In selecting partners, PPP program should consider two more aspects, in addition to the current review of the proposed activity, that is, (1) whether the applicant company has generated a negative impact when operating in developing countries, and (2) whether the company is consistently integrating CSR activities with its business strategy.
