Guidelines for the Development of a Policy for Managing Unsolicited Proposals in Infrastructure Projects
When it comes to infrastructure projects, “unsolicited proposals” (USPs) represent an alternative to the traditional project initiation method where the private sector, rather than the government, takes the leading role in identifying and developing a project. In practice, many public authorities across the world resort to USPs motivated by the perspective of solving the challenges brought by their lack of capacity to identify and develop projects. However, many projects that o...

Experience with PPPs to date in the Caribbean has been mixed. PPPs are not new in the region, having been used to deliver new or improved roads, ports, airports, bulk water treatment facilities, and electricity generation plants. Many PPP projects have operated successfully for years, delivering high-quality infrastructure facilities. Others have faced challenges. In many cases, the complexity of the PPP development and implementation process has meant long delays in delivering projects; o...

Non-revenue water (NRW) management can deliver significant financial and economic benefits, and to a large extent, NRW programs can be self-financing—rapid revenue gains from commercial loss reduction, for example, can supply the OPEX and CAPEX funds needed to reduce the NRW. But these benefits often remain unrealized, because water service providers face many political, financial and technical hurdles. NRW PBCs (performance-based contracts) provide an opportunity to invite...

LESSONS LEARNED SINCE THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTORS IN EMERGING MARKETS TODAY
Every financial system has faced or will face a crisis at some point. But even in the absence of a crisis, the extraordinary growth in credit over the last two decades has resulted in an increase of non-performing loans (NPLs), which are an unavoidable by-product of lending. This can put economies at risk. When not addressed, distressed assets can grow to reach critical thresholds that can slow down, or even prevent, economic recovery and increase unemployment, creating a vicious circle th...

Governments that use public-private partnerships (PPPs) to build infrastructure usually acknowledge contingent liabilities. Examples include contingent liabilities regarding early contract termination, or debt and revenue guarantees. Governments can face difficulties as they consider whether or not to assume these liabilities, and how to value, monitor, and limit liability. This report reviews how governments in Australia, Chile, and South Africa have tackled these problems, and explores w...

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the delivery of public services have become a phenomenon which is spreading the globe and generating great interest. But why is a concept, barely mentioned a decade ago, now attracting such interest? Overall, the answer is that PPPs avoid the often negative effects of either exclusive public ownership and delivery of services, on the one hand, or outright privatization, on the other. In contrast, PPPs combine the best of both worlds...

The last year saw a surge of climate change impacts across the globe, ranging from rising sea levels to uncontrolled wildfires. Developing countries and emerging economies are especially vulnerable to these impacts, partly because they lack the resources and capacity to address them—especially when the COVID-19 pandemic is ravaging economies worldwide. PPIAF’s role in addressing the impacts of climate change on infrastructure development is in line with the World Bank’s g...

One of the most important issues in designing a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) contract for infrastructure projects is the allocation of the project’s risks between the public and private parties. As we have discussed in the companion paper, the risk allocation is a means to give appropriate incentives for the private partner to perform according to the contract terms, thus achieving value for money. In what follows, we shall describe best practices in risk allocation, complementin...
