Handshake: a quarterly journal on public-private partnerships, is the World Bank Group’s flagship peer-reviewed publication on PPPs. It explores the pragmatic and innovative solutions that the public and private sectors can create together to address complex global challenges. There is a huge amount of rhetoric and misconceptions surrounding PPPs. As governments in emerging markets look to address seemingly intractable infrastructure and service quality challenges to better serve their citizens, there are few places for them to find relatable, real-world examples and solutions. Handshake aims to fill this void by presenting key issues and solutions in the sector, articles and interviews with industry and academic experts, and columns from seasoned PPP professionals.
