Private Sector Development Programmes (PSDPs)

As part of its mandate of providing assistance in the formulation and implementation of support programmes for the private sector, co-financed by third parties, the CDE has developed a number of Private Sector Development Programmes (PSDPs) with some ACP countries or regions.

Its budget allocated for operations being limited, this is a way for the CDE to mobilise additional resources to ensure some leverage effect.

The CDE is currently running six Private Sector Development Programmes (PSDPs) on behalf of third parties.
