Evaluating the environment for public-private partnerships in Eastern Europe and the CIS

The 2012 EECIS Infrascope – Findings and methodology

This document presents the first Eastern Europe and CIS regional edition of a learning tool and benchmarking index that assesses country capacity to carry out sustainable public-private infrastructure partnerships (PPPs). The index results discussed herein contain the key findings of an in-depth analysis conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit up to the end of 2012, focused on PPP policies and regulations, standards and practices, relevant country experiences and attitudes towards private participation in infrastructure provision. The index that underlies this report compares countries across six broad categories, spanning the project lifecycle from project inception to implementation, oversight and termination. Country evaluations are meant to address questions around both the short-term, practical implementation of PPPs, as well as questions regarding the sustainability, quality, and efficiency of PPP projects.
This regional edition of the Infrascope index was built by the Economist Intelligence Unit based on a methodology developed in 2009 and 2010 for Latin America and the Caribbean and Asia-Pacific. It was supported financially by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
