Multi-Stakeholder Partnership(MSP) The Mission 2007 Approach
WHY MSP?The Hypothesis Knowledge is as critical for holistic development of communities as access to material resources! ICTs can play an enabling role in accessing knowledge. For ICT enabled development, partnerships are indispensable.
What is MSP?The Definition MSPs are partnership between various sectors of the society, such as the Public, Private, CSO, Academia, Media, etc. Built on the premises of equality, transparency, accountability, mutual sharing of risks and benefits. Facilitating the use of ICTs for development.
Why not PPP or Multi-SectoralPartnerships? MSPs are unique! The partners are “stakeholders”! They have a stake or an interest in the issue area that the partnership is addressing; They are influenced by any decisions in the issue area; They can also influence decisions in the issue area! They represent a “coalition of the concerned”!
