After brief discussion of governance as a context for approaches to combating poverty, this paper presents tri-sector partnerships as an emerging strategy with the potential of being more effective than more narrowly conceived public-private partnerships. These partnerships, involving the public sector, the private sector, and civil society organizations, are then examined in a systematic evaluation of such cases included in the UN Habitat Best Practices database. The findings produce several specific policy implications and the key concusions that effective partnerships include civil society groups in meaningful roles and function around clustered programme domains, the synergistic interrelationships of which can be srengthened through appropriate policy interventions.
