Introduction to Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs)

Why Attend

After the financial crisis of 2008, many governments around the world turned to the private sector to help finance and implement major public projects through Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). While the main reason for governments to turn to PPPs was to reduce upfront costs, it soon became clear that successful PPPs also resulted in better infrastructure projects and improved government services. This has allowed governments to focus more on policy, planning, and regulation without having to worry about operations and implementation.

In this course, attendees will learn all about PPPs and the process and steps needed to establish a partnership that can benefit both the public and private sectors.
