Abstract

This paper addresses the important role of cross-sector partnerships and collaboration in global emergency management, relevant in situations such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and grand global challenges. We offer a conceptual discussion that explicates the vital role of such partnerships in global emergencies. We also highlight the instrumental role of adaptive learning in cross-sector partnerships, which can help multiple stakeholders create and deliver value in response to an emergency like a global health pandemic caused by the COVID-19. Along with the conceptual discussion, we further offer practical examples of cross-sector partnerships in emerging economies of Pakistan, Turkey, and Nigeria—undertaken in response to the recent pandemic—emphasizing that such partnerships are crucial to mitigate the emergencies and their consequences on society. Finally, the paper offers theoretical and practical implications for cross-sector collaboration and partnerships in response to the global crisis.
