Abstract This field study is part of the Schokland project to research among others the possibilities for Public Private Cooperation (PPC) in stimulating Economic Growth in Fragile States. Fragile states are relatively far behind in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and in order to reduce fragility in the long run, it is essential to stimulate economic growth. PPC is defined in this project as a form of collaboration between the Netherlands Government, the Netherlands private sector and Dutch NGOs with local stakeholders with the aim to see what complementary roles these actors can play in socio-economic recovery processes in fragile and post conflict states. The overall research consists of a central research, an economic mission and a so-called decentral field research, to which category this study belongs. This field research concerns the Eastern DRC component, notably fieldwork in North Kivu and the Ituri district of the Province Oriental. The primary objective of this decentralised study was to identify options for (Dutch) private sector and public sector actors to engage in post conflict settings, what sectors are potentially interesting for foreign (Dutch) investment and how local state and non-state stakeholders could participate in future PPCs. Furthermore, the study aims to assess the potential contribution of public–private cooperation to fair and sustainable economic development and to conflict transformation.
