PPPs in the Road Sector


Public Private Partnerships are being increasingly utilized as an alternative to traditional public financing methods for road and surface transport. This training program will bring together top practitioners and experts from the private sector, public sector, and financing institutions to discuss and the examine what are the necessary conditions to implement successful PPP projects that bring value to the government, its private sector partners, and most importantly the public.
The program will involve a detailed discussion of key success factors such as building capacity within the public and private sector, the necessary policy framework, optimal risk sharing practices, and available tools to assess the financial viability of projects. In addition, the program will examine successful examples from both emerging and developed economies and present some practices and tools that can be utilized under different country conditions.
