Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can be a tool to get more quality infrastructure services to more people.  When designed well and implemented in a balanced regulatory environment, PPPs can bring greater efficiency and sustainability to the provision of public services such as energy, transport, telecommunications, water, healthcare, and education. PPPs can also allow for better allocation of risk between public and private entities.

A Public-private partnership (PPP) is well-established for the construction of economic and social infrastructure and are now used in more than half of the world’s countries. The model is well-established for the construction of economic infrastructure such as roads, bridges and public transport systems but it is also used for social infrastructures such as schools, prisons, and hospital.

It relies on the recognition that public and private sectors each have certain advantages relative to others in performing specific tasks. The responsibilities of the private sector could entail finance, design, construction, operation, management and maintenance of the project.

This 10 Days course aims to do just that. Beginning with an in-depth understanding of how PPPs work, from financial, commercial, project & legal aspects, we seek to push our participants to innovate with real life case studies, group discussions and technical evaluation.
