Public private partnerships (PPPs) are arrangements between government and private sector entities for the purpose of providing public infrastructure, community facilities and related services. Such partnerships are characterized by the sharing of investment, risk, responsibility and reward between the partners. The reasons for establishing such partnerships vary but generally involve the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of public infrastructure and services. The Private Finance Initiative (PFI) is a method which uses private sector capacity and public resources in order to deliver public sector infrastructure and/or services according to a specification defined by the public sector, which is very similar with PPP projects.


Experience in African projects shows that there still is a huge need for capacity building in Africa’s public sector.  Growth  will  be  sustainable  only  if  both  government  stability  and  market  attractiveness (transparency,  regulatory  and  legal  frameworks,  etc) are ensured.  Inadequate  infrastructure  is  holding back  Africa’s  economic  growth  by  2%  each  year  and  reducing  firms’  productivity  by  as  much  as  40%. Emerging markets in East Africa have a growing demand for infrastructure, and government financing will not  be  sufficient  to  meet  the  needs,  hence  the  urgency  to  implement  successful  PPPs/PFI  for  improved services in the region.


This 4 day workshop will address an in-depth understanding of how project finance for PPP/PFI works, financial modelling and analysis, risk analysis, contract framework with real case studies in African context.


Our course leader will deliver a tailored course specially developed for Government officials, decision makers, and senior management, to acquaint them with the different options of Public Private Partnerships (PPP) as well as with the design, implementation and management of PPP arrangements.  A small library of background reading is provided. Our guest speaker from Gautrain will share the case study about Gautrain, African’s largest rail PPP. Another financial modelling specialist, the Director from PKF Consulting will cover some concerned issues in financial modelling.

  • PPP Fundamentals
