Governments of developing countries are increasingly turning to Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) as an alternative additional source of funding for infrastructure projects due to constraints on financial and public resources. While there are many advantages in employing PPP, there are also a number of potential risks associated with such partnership. To avoid these risks and leverage the opportunities of PPP, it is important for the parties involved to first understand several key considerations, including the capital investment required, the technical and technological requirements of the project, and the operational controls, before signing a PPP agreement.
In a two-hour live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the potential opportunities and challenges in a Public-Private Partnership. They will also offer best practices in addressing the most commonly raised issues with PPPs.
Key topics include:
What is a Public-Private Partnership?
The Benefits and Drawbacks of PPPs
Common Issues to Consider
The Use of PPPs in the US
Structuring Payments under a PPP Agreement
Best Practices for Delivering Efficient PPP Projects
