CEPA developed a compendium on infrastructure Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) for the Commonwealth Secretariat. The Compendium aimed to be a comprehensive reference manual for Ministers and senior decision-makers, which covers policy and design issues relating to PPPs. The Compendium covered the following key aspects: trends in PPP theory and practice; constraints to infrastructure PPPs in developing countries and measures to address these constraints – including PPP units, donor funded facilities, amongst others; the infrastructure project cycle and the project development process; and PPP portfolio management. The Compendium also presented detailed case studies on successful and failed PPP transactions across the infrastructure sectors (including social infrastructure) to bring out the main lessons learnt.

We developed this guide through extensive desk research, as well as selective consultations with Governments in the Commonwealth countries to solicit their views on the kinds of information they would find useful in such a guide.

The guide can be found here.
