Additional Information



This study formally examines the intricacies of public-private partnerships at ICRISAT in order to glean from experiences how best to effectively and efficiently develop strategic partnerships that work and to build a learning module on successful partnership management for ICRISAT staff and partners. Public-private partnerships are examined in the light of institutional behavior and lessons learned, which facilitate/impede the exchange of potential pro-poor knowledge and technology. The focus is on three key issues: (1) the rationale for forging partnerships; (2) the benefits accrued; and (3) lessons learned from ongoing partnerships to harness more successful strategic ties in the future. Collaborations between scientists of the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) were examined, especially working linkages between and among researchers based in international, regional and national organizations spread across Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Data and information were obtained through web- and email-based surveys across all the regional locations of ICRISAT. The resulting analysis characterizes public-private partnerships at ICRISAT and delves into factors that contribute to their success or failure. These findings are critical to developing a learning module on the best practices in undertaking strategic partnerships at ICRISAT.
