Agency PSD Strategies

This webpage serves as a resource for donor and development agency staff engaged in strategy formulation at Headquarter level. It also holds useful information for staff involved or interested in donor coordination and PSD strategy development at the country level, and businesses interested in working with donor agencies.

‘Big picture’ summary of current priorities and trends in agency PSD policies

Working with and through the private sector is a priority across donor and development agencies in order to achieve lasting and scalable development results – including by creating jobs, incomes and better services for the poor.

The DCED’s Synthesis Note on donor PSD policies summarises key insights into current priorities and trends – based on policy papers and other material on agency websites. It also outlines some areas for further considerations as new policies and programmes are developed, and how the DCED can assist.
