Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are a tool that help governments leverage the expertise and efficiency of the private sector, raise capital, and spur development. They also help allocate risk across the public and private sectors to where it can best be managed and ensure that resources are wisely distributed in addressing the most urgent development needs.
IFC's advice in PPPs is helping national and municipal governments in developing countries partner with the private sector to improve access to education, energy, transport, healthcare, and sanitation.
The Impact of IFC Clients in PPPs:
PPPs are long-term contracts between a private company and a government agency for providing a public asset or service.
They include roads, ports, buildings, power generation, and water and healthcare services.
