The present material serves to equip CSOs with both the conceptual and basic technical knowhow in monitoring private sector engagements (PSEs) in development cooperation. It is divided into two parts. The first part of this handbook introduces the reader to PSE and the Kampala Principles, which lay down broad strategies for PSE in development cooperation. The second part turns to a more technical discussion on how CSOs can monitor PSE at the country and sub-country level.
With the aid of this handbook, it is hoped that CSOs themselves will be able to produce monitoring reports and integrate them within their respective advocacies and, ultimately, help ensure that private sector actors engaged in development cooperation are accountable to the people.
