A joint publication of CDI with Partnerships Resource Centre, ICCO and PSO with the latest insights on cooperation between business and civil society actors for development. This digital publication is the product of an international learning event where development NGOs and businesses from the North and the South reflected on their partnerships. CSOs and business do complement each other and can play a stronger role together for the cause of real social change and sustainable development. But there are issues to be addressed before this can become reality. Five main insights from this learning event are shared, with embedded links to in-depth case studies; background papers and videos.
