Overview 

The infrastructure gap, estimated at trillions of dollars, existed even before the Covid-19 pandemic. Infrastructure helps connect people to services, maintain quality of life, and boost economic productivity, all of which are now threatened by Covid-19. Once the acute phase of Covid-19 is over, governments will need infrastructure to accelerate economic recovery, create jobs, reduce poverty, and stimulate productive investments. Compounding these challenges is the lack of bankable projects, as well as fewer public resources to invest. Private sector mobilization will be more urgent than ever.

The course on Project Preparation to Bridge the Infrastructure Gap provides the participants with the tools and techniques to review proposed infrastructure projects and assess the potential for such projects being implemented with private participation, through the most appropriate form of public-private partnership (PPP). Specific tools will be made available to the participants to carry out economic, financial and risk analysis of proposed projects in all infrastructure sectors.

Among the course tools are: (a) the financial models of the Toolkit for PPP in Roads and Highways, developed by the World Bank/PPIAF; (b) the project risk matrices prepared by the Global Infrastructure Hub (GIH); and (c) more recently developed financial assessment models for PPP in transport, energy, water and sanitation sectors.

In addition to the review of essential concepts and available tools, the course includes case studies, hands-on conceptual and numerical exercises. Attendees will deepen their understanding on the key principles behind PPPs (also known as P3s), alternative delivery methods, financial and risk assessments, and the role they can play in improving service quality, addressing O&M challenges, and delivering essential infrastructure.
