PPPs

Everyone is a Potential Influencer: Effective PPP stakeholder engagement

Jeffrey Ghannam's picture




 
Many of us recognize that well-designed PPPs can help governments increase private-sector investment in public-sector infrastructure and allow government financing to be allocated to other priorities. With thoughtful stakeholder engagement strategies in place, PPPs have the potential to leverage the private sector’s expertise and innovation to ensure effective long-term management of public resources.

Country Experience with Unsolicited PPP Proposals: Distinct, Diverse, Disparate

Don’t we all receive unsolicited advice pretty regularly? This is advice we just didn’t ask for—how we should dress, what we should eat, all the way to fundamental life choices on whom we should marry and when we should raise a family.

On very few occasions, this unsolicited advice sticks and improves our lives. But in most cases, we roll our eyes and forget about it.

is always a good time to take stock of where we are in achieving the water-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Most PPPs relate to relatively large investments in major infrastructure run by utilities. But in the developing world’s rapidly growing small towns and urban peripheries, we need something else.
 
Enter safe (also called small) water enterprises, an exciting group of dedicated social entrepreneurs who are beginning to gain traction providing high quality water to communities not served by utilities. For example, our friends at  (more about that .) A suggested a potential market of 3.9 billion people for safe water enterprises.

“If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old,”—good advice from innovation and management guru . This approach was key to a PPP we coordinated in one of the world’s oldest areas, the West Bank.
 

Holding up half the sky—and some blogs

Cara Santos Pianesi's picture




Bloggers write to share unique insights. They may want to simply share knowledge, push an issue forward, establish thought leadership, and in some cases drive business.

Bloggers also create community. For example, this blog platform reaches a subscribed community (25K in number!) interested in infrastructure finance, PPPs, and the use of guarantees to spur private-sector investments—especially in developing countries. With niche topics like this, a blogspace becomes a virtual gathering place where we can exchange war stories, spectacular examples, best practices, trends, and opinions. We can know that others care about the same topics. We can also blog to shape the demographics of discourse and raise specific voices.

Creating the second largest regional electricity market in the world

Regional trade in electricity and other energy products can be a powerful force for market integration and sustainable development. In the Arab world, there are great potential benefits from increasing electricity trade beyond its current, very low level. The potential shared value of trade in electricity in 2020–2030 is estimated at $12 billion. We can expect even greater savings, about $44 billion, from more optimal power systems operation, with a major role for gas as the main fuel for power generation, displacing expensive liquid fuels.

“If all parties understood the other’s vantage point,”
says the recently CP3P certified Francis Chukwu, “more deals would happen—facilitating more investment, and more successfully executed projects.”
 
Francis Chukwu had a distinguished career as an international project finance lawyer in Lagos, Nigeria, (with Aluko & Oyebode) and then in Paris, France, (with Clifford Chance) advising mostly equity investors and lenders before joining the World Bank Group’s in 2016. He was offered the chance to become CP3P certified through the , and when he took the first Foundation-level exam he thought he could just go in and pass. Not so.

World Bank guarantees help Benin refinance expensive debt & address health, education needs: a win-win

While the World Bank’s resources for low-income countries have never been greater, they still pale in comparison with these countries’ needs. Governments always need to make hard choices between infrastructure needs, social programs, and fiscal discipline. One country was recently able to strike the right balance with the support of World Bank guarantees: Benin.

Credit enhancement: a boost to private capital in infrastructure?

Michela Bariletti's picture



A strange irony persists in today’s infrastructure investment market: private capital waiting to be deployed into the sector is at an all-time high, yet investors seem reluctant to commit. Even in developed countries, few investors are willing to partake in transactions with merchant or construction risks without taking a higher risk premium.

This can make the financing of infrastructure projects more costly—a challenge particularly acute in emerging markets where further investment risks abound.
