Available for free download: Public-Private Dialogue for Sector Competitiveness and Local Economic Development: Lessons form the Mediterranean Region, a comparative study which explores the influence of PPDs on local development and sector competitiveness. The report presents 20 case studies: 10 on the citrus fruit sector and the cruise industry in Egypt, Lebanon, Malta, Spain and Turkey, and another 10 in various sectors in one single region of Spain, Catalonia. Outlining the variety of results from PPD processes on sector-specific development and competitiveness both regionally for the Mediterranean and within a single regional jurisdiction, the report provides a set of guidelines and advocates a new approach: Local Sector-Specific PPDs (LSPPDs).
Still available: the 2011 PPD Workshop content from the Vienna, Austria event which gathered PPD practitioners from 20 countries to share experiences on PPD implementation. And, our classic, the PPD Handbook, which includes basic operational guidelines for practitioners, a standardized PPD evaluation tool and the PPD Database tool to help manage and track the issues raised by working groups.
