n Institute for Security Studies Papers - Engaging the private sector in post-conflict recovery - perspectives for SADPA

Economic revitalisation and job creation are major components of the effort to consolidate sustainable peace in post-conflict settings. Public institutions tend to lead efforts to stimulate recovery. Yet the private sector has a role to play too, as post-conflict revitalisation and reconstruction offer commercial opportunities. There is a growing trend among donors and governments towards engaging business to meet development goals. At the same time, South Africa is looking to coordinate its various development cooperation activities through the South African Development Partnership Agency (SADPA). This makes it relevant to examine whether, and how, SADPA might support private-sector development and engagement in fragile and post-conflict African settings.
