During the period 1998-1999 the OAS began a systematic effort to expand inter-American public-private partnerships to support training and education in key development issues. This effort is specifically intended to strengthen existing partnerships and organize new ones to support learning through international courses and seminars, studies abroad and academic and professional exchanges.
This initiative was conducted within the framework of the Strategic Plan for Partnership for Development 1997-2001 of the Inter-American Council for Integral Development (CIDI) of the OAS and made possible by a grant of the United States Department of State through the U.S. Mission to the OAS. What follows is a summary description of the background of the initiative, work carried out so far and preliminary results of this experience.
