Capacity Building and Training Workshop: Public-Private Partnerships for Infrastructure Projects with a Focus on Transport
11 - 14 February 2019
Ministry of Commerce (MINCO)
Luanda, Angola

Key Issues

This capacity building and training workshop is part of the training activities of the EU-UNCTAD joint Programme of Support for Angola: Train for Trade II – a Trade Support Project (ACOM) financed by the EU. The Transport and Logistics Component training workshop will concentrate on Public-Private Partnerships for infrastructure projects with a focus on transport, namely, roads, rails and ports.

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are a mechanism for government to procure and implement public infrastructure and/or services using the resources and expertise of the private sector. PPPs can be an effective way to build and implement new infrastructure, or to renovate, operate, maintain or manage existing transport infrastructure facilities. In both areas PPPs can be a mutually beneficial way to solve critical transportation problems if they are properly structured and implemented. PPPs combine the skills and resources of both the public and private sectors through sharing of risks and responsibilities. With that context in mind, the course will be divided into the following four modules:

i. Present an overview of PPPs, and the potential benefits and possible pitfalls of adopting them;
ii. Present the step-by-step cycle of a PPP;
iii. Discuss the institutional environment, and the structure of governance that contributes to the success of a Program of Public-Private Partnerships. The best practices adopted around the world will be presented; and 
iv. Analyse and discuss relevant case studies from the transportation sector, specifically on roads, rails and ports, across the four modules.
