India grapples with the paradox of endemic backwardness in over 200 districts while certain sections and sectors are moving at a pace that is making global headlines. This report on “Creating Vibrant Public-Private-Panchayat Partnership (PPPP) for Inclusive Growth through Inclusive Governance” presents some new perspectives and solutions by bringing together the local governance agenda through the Panchayati Raj, the issue of agricultural development which influences the livelihoods of a vast majority of Indians, and the role that the business sector could play in rural transformation. It presents case studies which show that partnership models which could ensure an income of over Rs.25,000 per annum on 0.5 hectare plots are feasible even in the context of a highly hostile eco-environment.

In view of its cross-cutting theme, this crisp report is a ‘must read’ for policy makers and practitioners in the area of pro-poor growth, rural development, local governance and public-private partnership.



Harsh Singh has a rich cross-institutional background. He served in the Indian Economic Service for a decade which included a tenure in the Department of Economic Affairs, Government of India. He served in UNDP India from 1992 to 2009. As Assistant Resident Representative, he led various Divisions such as Strategic Planning, Pro-poor Livelihoods and Private Sector Partnership. He also served as an advisor in the High Level Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor.
