Public lecture event with Eduardo Engel
Public - Private Partnerships: When and How
This presentation seeks to answer three main questions: When are public-private partnerships (PPPs) the best way to provide and finance infrastructure facilities? If a PPP is selected, how should the contract be designed? And what is the appropriate structure of PPP governance? We use the lessons from two decades of worldwide experience with PPPs as well as the concepts provided by economic theory to address these issues.
The answer to these questions depends on the type of infrastructure facility to be built and on the institutional conditions in the country (or municipality, state, or province) in question. Nevertheless, several guiding principles emerge from the material we cover, leading to many recommendations for the future of public-private partnerships.
