PPIAF supports private sector participation in Egypt's West Delta irrigation project (English)

In 2006 Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) helped the Egyptian government develop a conceptual framework and transaction model for implementing a surface water irrigation system in the West Delta region. As a result of this activity, the government adopted a public-private partnership model for the project, which was designed as a hybrid scheme based on the design-build-operate model and focused on minimizing tariffs and mitigating risks. The project represents a sustainable framework for private investment in large-and medium-scale irrigation that has set new precedents for the irrigation sector in Egypt and has already generated interest for possible use in new projects in Ethiopia, India, Turkey, and Zambia. It will also bring higher quality water to the 250,000 agricultural workers and the 500,000 people who inhabit the West Delta region.
