Statement of Need

Public-Private Partnerships (or PPPs, as they are more commonly known) are partnerships between the public sector and one or more private sector companies to help finance, build, operate and manage a public sector infrastructural project or service delivery. When there is limited public funding and the funding and timely completion of large-scale public projects are at risk, PPPs become necessary. 

Developing countries are increasingly looking out to the private sector for financing capital intensive projects through PPP models. Designing the PPP projects as well as managing them is a challenge in most public sector settings. Developing PPPs projects that are bankable, designing robust PPP contracts, PPP contract negotiation are some of the challenges many government institutions face.
