Financial assessments of proposed projects have become necessary for countries considering PPPs for infrastructure projects. These assessments are essential to attracting private investors. This is particularly important for countries with substantial needs in infrastructure rehabilitation and expansion. The workshop primarily focuses on two financial models: graphical and numerical, which have proven quite successful for preliminary financial evaluations when detailed data and financial arrangements are not yet fully defined.
* Workshop participants are encouraged to obtain, prior to the workshop, basic data available on an existing or proposed PPP project of their interest. If this is not feasible, pro forma data will be provided at the seminar.
