This Handbook resulted from valuable contributions of a diverse range of authors originating from three international organisations (African Development Bank Group, United Nations and World Bank Group), the Prime Minister’s Office of the Government of Bangladesh, the Brazilian Development Bank and the Instituto Brasileiro de Administração Municipal (IBAM), as well as academic institutions from 12 countries.
Several key aspects associated with the processes of designing, implementing, operating and evaluating PPPs are discussed in this Handbook, in connection to the creation of better conditions to ensure PPPs result in the highest value for public money and welfare within the Sustainable Development Goals framework. This Handbook covers the following core areas: recent trends on PPPs in developing and emerging economies, public policy practises and social entrepreneurship, implementation and evaluation of PPPs, empirical analysis of PPP determinants, identification of the constraints, triggers and determinants to PPP implementation, guiding principles for PPP sustainability and value for money, and finally, lessons learned and emerging best practices from a range of case studies. It discusses in particular the experiences of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Nigeria, Senegal, Turkey, India, and Central Asian countries (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan) in implementing PPPs.
