The PPP model is a collaboration between a government agency and a private sector company that can be used to finance, build, and operate a project, such as a hospital in the case of Lesotho (Queen ‘Mammohato Memmorial Hospital).
At least two representatives are expected to attend from each media house.
This model was adopted by many governments because through it such a project can be completed sooner, managed better or make it possible where government alone would have otherwise failed.
The Policy Analysis and Research Institute of Lesotho (PARIL) in partnership with the African Forum and Network on Debt and Development (AFRODAD) has organised a two day media training starting on February 20 at Avani, Lesotho.
“We believe that the media plays a critical role in awareness raising and the creation and shaping of the public opinion on development initiatives in the country and region resulting in enhanced contribution from the various concerned stakeholders,” says Lehlohonolo Chefa, PARL executive director.
