The term ‘partnership’ can cover a wide range of relationships between different types of organisations. However, genuine partnerships between the private and NGO sectors are still relatively uncommon. The global consultancy firm Arup has developed a number of partnerships with NGOs in the water sector to bring international expertise to help solve local problems. This paper briefly reviews the partnership context and describes two water projects – one in Bangladesh and one in Ghana - where Arup staff have worked with local NGOs to develop locally appropriate solutions to technical problems. The paper explores the mutual benefits that both organisations can enjoy from this type of partnership.
