Contractual disagreements and disputes are common in PPPs during both construction and operational periods.
Tackling the global infrastructure gap remains a priority for governments to drive inclusive growth and deliver quality infrastructure projects for their citizens.
The term of a public-private partnership (PPP) contract can exceed 20 or even 30 years. At the end of the term, the relevant private partner is often obligated to hand back the public asset in question (whether it be a road, an airport or a hospital) in a condition that meets the government procuring authority’s expectations.
The Infrastructure Knowledge Exchange (IKE) is Global infrastructure Hubs' (GI Hub) database of categorised infrastructure resources. The tool has been created to help Infrastructure professionals globally, to easily find resources that pertain to infrastructure tools, data, publications, organisations, reports and, news.
Globally, governments are accountable for the development of infrastructure and the delivery of basic services in an affordable and inclusive manner. The ability of governments to nurture a conducive enabling environment for infrastructure investment has often been found to be a key differentiator between countries that successfully scale up infrastructure and those that face challenges in doing so.
Inadequate financing for project preparation can result in projects being taken to procurement without the requisite readiness, which can lead to cost and time overruns during implementation, or a project that is not well-suited to the needs of the public.
Most infrastructure investment plans and government policies rely on the delivery of projects and programs. To achieve these and unlock the real benefits of infrastructure, it is vital that projects and programs are delivered well.
Communication throughout infrastructure project preparation should be recognised as a strategic activity. It should factor in the importance of all key stakeholder groups towards the project, tailor communicative actions to engage and inform them and foster a supportive environment.
Project preparation is a critical enabler of infrastructure development and has been identified as a key pillar in the G20’s strategic roadmap to develop infrastructure as an asset class.
On 9 June 2019, the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors endorsed new G20 Principles for Quality Infrastructure Investment at their meeting in Fukuoka, Japan.
Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World: Multilateral Lending Instruments for Infrastructure Financing - A report by the G-24 and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI). This paper is part of The Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World Working Paper Series, which is a joint research effort by GGGI and the G-24 that explores the challenges and opportunities for scaling up infrastructure finance in emerging markets and developing countries.
In light of the overwhelming needs for infrastructure finance in emerging and developing economies and the limitations facing alternative flows of financing, there is a clear role of MDBs to continue and in fact step up their activities. The Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World Working Paper Series is a joint research effort by GGGI and the G-24 that explores the challenges and opportunities for scaling up infrastructure finance in emerging markets and developing countries.
This paper examines investments - in the form of equity or debt—in direct investments to infrastructure. The reason for focusing on direct investment is twofold. First, the overall analysis of debt and equity capital markets for infrastructure exceeds the scope of this study and involves instruments that trade on regulated stock and bond markets. Second, the analysis of direct investments by private investors in listed infrastructure enables us to focus more on the risk analysis process that these investors typically perform when approaching an investment.
This paper expands upon existing literature by proposing a wider definition of what constitutes green infrastructure. We then develop a holistic cost model by defining and quantifying the investment categories that should be considered part of green infrastructure.
The Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World Working Paper Series is a joint research effort by the Global Green Growth Institute and the G-24 that explores the challenges and opportunities for scaling up infrastructure finance in emerging markets and developing countries.
The paper discusses general trends in involving the private sector in public projects, PPPs and asymmetric information, and policy conclusions.
This paper examines the public finance underpinnings for an enhanced focus on different types of long-term investments as well as on operations and maintenance of existing investments.
This paper discusses some of the main challenges in developing a robust and viable project pipeline to address the daunting infrastructure needs facing many countries worldwide.
