Project Description

According to the bank website, "this knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) responds to the requests of developing member countries (DMCs) to strengthen public sector capacity to catalyse infrastructure investments including through public-private partnerships (PPPs) in fiscally-responsive, development-relevant ways. The TA complements ADB's private sector operations by supporting operational departments in creating the proper conditions for the private sector in general to engage more effectively. Aligned to ADB's PPP Operational Plan 2012 2020, this TA will support DMCs in improving current institutional and regulatory structures to manage PPP appraisal, vetting and risk management, monitoring and evaluation, thereby (i) strengthening the credibility of PPP pipeline development efforts; (ii) using proper public financial management (PFM) frameworks for PPPs; and (iii) improving government capacity to effectively design, implement and manage PPPs (with lessons from international experience). The TA is included in the Sustainable Development and Climate Change Department's 2019 results-based work plan for the Governance Thematic Group (SDTC-GOV)."
