CANBERRA — While 2017 will largely be remembered for its politics and increasing focus on nationalism, demand for humanitarian and development assistance is increasing. And so too is the need for private sector partners to support the delivery of outcomes, including infrastructure and energy projects, education programs, institutional reforms, and health initiatives.
As the year draws to a close, Devex has collated the largest contracts awarded and biggest new opportunities for partnership in 2017.
Top contracts awarded
In 2017, the top five contracts awarded exceeded $3 billion. The projects demonstrate a range of requirements development donors have of the private sector — but also the time, complexity, and effort that is needed to win the big contracts.
