Private Sector Development

The private sector drives the economic growth that is needed to alleviate poverty in developing countries. Achieving pro-poor growth with an increase in employment opportunities and enterprise development is critical for development. LDP supports governments in the development of policy and regulatory frameworks that enable private sector led growth.

Our private sector development work focuses on developing and implementing pro-poor private sector development and economic growth strategies; supporting gender based investment climate reform programmes and promoting local and regional economic development. Examples of LDP's private sector development work include:

  • Supporting the design, development and implementation of private sector development strategies for the Governments of Kenya, Ghana and Uganda
  • Designing the Government of Rwanda's Investment Climate Facility Project - subsequently accepted for funding by the Investment Climate Facility for Africa as its first ever project
  • Supporting the IFC and World Bank to identify gender barriers to private sector development and integrate gender into investment climate reform programmes in Rwanda, Uganda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, Egypt, Yemen, Cambodia and the South Pacific
  • Conducting a survey of businesses in Tanzania to ascertain the business costs of legal and regulatory barriers for the Government of Tanzania; and
  • Assisting the Government of Indonesia to develop its approach to local and regional economic development
