Public Private Partnership Masterclass

Workshop Overview

Public-private partnerships (PPP/P3) between a government agency and private-sector company can be used to finance, build and operate projects, such as public transportation networks, parks and convention centres. Financing a project through a public-private partnership can allow a project to be completed sooner or make it a possibility in the first place.

Public-private partnerships have contract periods of 25 to 30 years or longer. Financing comes partly from the private sector but requires payments from the public sector and/or users over the project’s lifetime. The private partner participates in designing, completing, implementing and funding the project, while the public partner focuses on defining and monitoring compliance with the objectives. Risks are distributed between the public and private partners according to the ability of each to assess, control and cope with them.

In order to achieve a successful PPP, a careful analysis of the long-term development objectives and risk allocation is essential. The legal and institutional framework in the country also needs to support this new model of service delivery and provide effective governance and monitoring mechanisms for PPPs. A well drafted PPP agreement for the project should clearly allocate risks and responsibilities.

Why you Should Attend?

PPPs combine the skills and resources of both the public and private sectors through sharing of risks and responsibilities. This enables governments to benefit from the expertise of the private sector, and allows them to focus instead on policy, planning and regulation by delegating day-to-day operations.

Public-private partnerships are typically found in transport infrastructure such as highways, airports, railroads, bridges and tunnels. Municipal and environmental infrastructures include water and wastewater facilities. Public service accommodations include school buildings, prisons, student dormitories and entertainment or sports facilities.

Worldwide, growing populations, increasing rural urban migration and demands for economic development combine to produce an enormous appetite for infrastructure and social development projects. These range from power sector generation and distribution assets to airports and ports, roads and railways, to schools and hospitals that can only be met by mobilising private finance through Public Private Partnerships.

In this workshop, delegates will learn about the Public Private Partnership in terms of project screening and basic financial modelling. Participants have the opportunity to engage in group exercise on understanding the negotiation process in concession agreement.
