I agree with the suggestion that the US government, and other governments and donors, should make partnerships a core part of their strategies. That doesn't happen anywhere near enough, but could really transform the success of donor efforts to promote development. There's still a lot to work through though, in terms of developing institutional arrangements to drive forward these partnerships, to ensure they are sufficiently transparent, accountable and as impactful as they can be.
This could be tackled more explicitly in the post 2015 framework that is currently being developed, as I argued in my recent blog. However, the high level panel report didn't really propose this directly, although it did call for new kinds of global partnerships. It emphasised the need for corporates to first start undertaking integrated reporting, measuring the wider social, economic and environmental impacts of their operations, to build the trust of governments and donor partners - perhaps implying that this was a pre-requisite before deeper partnerships could be considered. I'd be interested in the views of others on this.
