PRIVATE SECTOR PARTNERSHIPS
SOFF encourages countries to explore opportunities for public-private partnerships, where relevant, to ensure cost-effective and efficient implementation of the GBON National Contribution Plan and achieve GBON compliance.
SOFF works closely with the Association of the Hydro-Meteorological Industry (HMEI) to jointly support the promotion of optimal technological solutions for the implementation of GBON in the SOFF beneficiary countries. HMEI is a Member of the SOFF Advisory Board.
Four possible business models have been identified, ranging from fully public to fully private, and can be deployed with variations depending on the specific country context.
