Public private partnerships (PPP) provide new options for public service delivery, given government budget constraints, and can introduce private sector efficiency and innovation in what have traditionally been public services. PPP provides a potentially effective way for investing in revenue generating and much-needed infrastructure services, particularly in the CLMV-T countries. While PPP promises significant benefits for both national development and corporate strategy, its planning and implementation also poses substantial challenges to government, the private sector, and to effective government-business cooperation, particularly as related to mega-projects.  

Learning Outcomes
The turbulent global environment is changing the nature and role of both hard infrastructure and soft infrastructure. This requires fundamental adjustments to the framework, concepts and methods of PPP. Upon completion of the workshop, you will:
  • Understand the role of public-private partnership (PPP) in linking national development priorities and private investment
  • Be familiar with fundamental PPP concepts and their operational requirements
  • Learn key lessons from international experience with PPP, with a particular focus on “best practices” and common challenges, including for mega-projects
  • Have an awareness of the practical impacts of key global trends and events on PPP, including the implications of a post-COVID project investment and economic environment
  • Gain an appreciation for how digital (disruptive) technology is changing the concept of infrastructure, and therefore the nature of PPP, and the implications for government and business, and government-business collaboration
  • Understand the opportunities and challenges of cross-border projects for PPP in the context of the CLMV – T countries, and their implications for project planning and implementation
  • Learn the guidelines for managing social, environmental and governance risks in the planning and implementation of infrastructure in general and PPP in particular, and the implications for project finance and implementation, and public policy
  • Have practical lessons from site visits to a PPP project reflecting key issues addressed in the workshop.
