Allocating Risks in Public-Private Partnership Contracts.

Risk allocation is at the centre of every PPP transaction, and a deep understanding of the risk allocation arrangements is a precondition to the drafting of every PPP agreement. Search below for guidance on typical risk allocation arrangements between public and private sectors in PPP transactions.

PPP Risk Allocation Tool

As part of its leading practices mandate, the GI Hub developed a set of annotated risk allocation matrices for PPP transactions, across the transport, energy and water and waste sectors. The PPP Risk Allocation Tool should be used to provide additional guidance to countries that wish to develop a programme of bankable PPP transactions.

Global Infrastructure Project Pipeline

PPP Contract Management
PPP Contract Management
Practical guidance on successful contract management post financial close.
PPP Contract Management report

A great deal of attention is paid to the preparation, procurement and negotiation processes of PPPs. However, this is only the start of delivering a successful project, and in many ways the most important work begins after financial close, during construction and operations, to ensure that the public is receiving the full benefit of the infrastructure services.

PPP Contract Management tool

The reference tool is informed by an in-depth analysis of 250 PPP projects globally that reached financial close between 2005 and 2015 (inclusive) to understand the core issues that arise during the construction and operations phases of a PPP project. From those projects, 25 projects were selected to develop detailed case

Project Preparation
Project Preparation
A practical guide for governments on processes facilitating early-stage project preparation
Project Preparation Reference Tool

The reference tool will be a useful aid for policy-makers and practitioners in their quest to improve project preparation practices and their capacity for preparing quality infrastructure projects, building upon the G20 Principles for the Infrastructure Project Preparation Phase.

The tool seeks to help address challenges faced by governments in early-stage project preparation through providing guidance and lessons learned in the enabling environment for project preparation; financing project preparation; infrastructure planning and project prioritisation; project feasibility, reviews and approvals; and project communication.

Download the report

This reference tool is intended to provide guidance on early-stage activities within the infrastructure project development cycle, and the enablers required to create a conducive environment to prepare sustainable, bankable and procurement-ready infrastructure projects.

Illustrated by country examples, it reinforces conceptual aspects and approaches covering the formulation of infrastructure plans, project pipeline creation, feasibility evaluation, project reviews and approvals, project marketing and stakeholder communication.
