The Role of Non-Governmental,
Private and Public sector in Africa
June 28-29th 2007, Kenya
The right people in the right place at the right time: this is what is required by those organisations (non-governmental organisations, NGOs, and international organisations, IOs) responding to an emergency or a disaster such as a conflict, a flood, a famine. The private sector’s human resource objectives are no different, if for different purposes. So is there opportunity for the private sector in Africa to work with NGOs and IOs in Africa to help those affected by conflicts and disasters?

Private sector willingness and capacity to contribute exists but benefits, for both parties, need to be identified and practical processes for mutual collaboration established. Click here for more information.
