Towards better infrastructure : conditions, constraints, and opportunities in financing public-private partnerships - evidence from Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Senegal (English)

The study is structured around the most inhibiting constraints to developing PPPs, as shared by all six countries. Section one provides a brief background of the infrastructure needs in the sample countries and outlines the current scope of PPP transactions; section two examines the sources of financing for PPPs, domestic and foreign, with a particular focus on domestic sources; section three explores the supporting legislative, regulatory, and institutional environment for PPPs; section four addresses issues connected with the importance of developing a sound pipeline of PPP projects; and section five tackles the importance of managing the increased government fiscal commitments that are commonly coupled with PPPs. Section six outlines medium-term options for PPP financing. Finally, section seven puts forth policy recommendations intended to assist in overcoming the challenges in building private sector confidence in the SSA infrastructure market and attracting greater levels of financing for private sector investment in core infrastructure services through PPPs.
