A Guidebook on Promoting Good Governance in Public Private Partnerships

The purpose of this guide is to demonstrate how governments and the private sector can together address the challenges by improving governance in PPPs. The introduction defines PPPs, the various models and benefits that can be generated and describes also the misconceptions surrounding PPPs and the challenges emerging from their complexity and cost. The next five chapters describe respectively: how to promote a sound overall legal, regulatory, policy and institutional framework; ways governments can increase the capacity to develop and manage PPPs projects; importance and means to address the risks in PPPs; how governments can encourage transparency; how to address suspicions and criticism of PPPs by media and civil society. The final chapters and annex identify some tools for implementing the above mentioned good governance best practices.
