This course aims to build the capacity of its participants to prepare bankable public private partnerships projects.
What are the key aspects of and issues faced in public private partnerships? Diverse series of cases in this course, from countries in the developing and developed world, offer lessons that will bring value to local PPP interventions.
Governments, worldwide face the challenge to provide infrastructure and services in the appropriate quantity and quality. Governments are increasingly under pressure to perform with limited resources. Knowing how to leverage know how and finance for investment in infrastructure and services is essential. The trend, in recent years, has been for governments to work in partnership with the private sector to tap its potential and to increase funding from private sources.
However, the process of preparing and putting projects out to bid is a lengthy and complicated process; the process of working together over the longer term is not an easy task. In this course you will work with the tools that governments and PPP professionals developed to ensure that the preparation (and implementation) process of PPP projects run smoothly.
The Preparing Bankable Public Private Partnership Projects course has a practical focus, it will deal with the key aspects of and issues faced in public private partnerships, will include three days of field visits to best practices in the Netherlands, and a programmed exercise that will take them through the process of putting together bankable PPP projects. The course will be case based, meaning that participants will analyse and discuss a diverse series of cases, from countries in the developing and developed world, and will derive lessons from these that will bring value to PPP interventions in their own countries.
Government officials, policy makers and managers, who are involved in setting up and executing public private partnerships in different infrastructure sectors. Also, academic or development community involved in providing support to governments involved in PPPs.
