Instanbul International Center for Private Sector in Development / United Nations Development Programme Liberia

2013

Overview

The Istanbul International Center for Private Sector in Development (IICPSD) is the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP’s) global institution-building platform with the private sector for business-born solutions to development challenges. IICPSD and UNDP, along with its corporate partners, worked on a procurement leveraging policy in Liberia with the goal of ensuring revenues from the country’s natural wealth created local content and measurable dividends to a broad base of individuals and communities. The student MAP team assisted partnering companies to explore how their local procurement strategies could be better centered on building local content, while assessing gaps that prevented local producers from entering supply chains.
