    Benin: Port of Cotonou

    PPP Brief

    Benin’s port of Cotonou is a potential gateway to landlocked West African countries, but high shipping costs, low efficiency, and poor logistical facilities have kept it from becoming a key trade route. As part of a major port sector reform program, the government hired IFC as the lead advisor on a public-private partnership for a new container terminal. The concession agreement was signed in September 2009.

    Benin: Piped Water Supply Systems in Rural and Small Towns

    PPP Brief

    In Benin, rural water systems had historically been operated by local communities, with varying degrees of success. In 2006, the Government of Benin (GoB) began to transfer the management of these water systems to private operators, under a lease/affermage arrangement to connect decentralized municipalities and small-scale private operators (POs). The number of piped water systems (PWS) managed through an affermage contract went from one in 2007 to 269 in 2014. These 269 PWS under affermage deliver water services to an estimated 1.7 million people (28 percent of the population). In 2010, the World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) commissioned an assessment of the performance of the privately-run water systems which uncovered a...

    Benin: Innovative Public-Private Partnerships for Rural Water Services Sustainability

    A case study

    This case study provides evidence of the possibilities for attracting private sector engagement in piped rural water systems, and also clearly lays out some of the on-going sustainability challenges. There is an important learning opportunity for the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa to develop similar PPP schemes to address the challenges with a greater emphasis on sustainable services that evolve together with the changing demands of rural populations.

    Public-Private Partnerships for Small Piped Water Schemes

    A Review of Progress in Seven African Countries

    This field note reviews the first generation of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) for small piped water schemes in seven countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Rwanda and Senegal. The field note proposes a framework for moving towards more sustainable piped water PPPs. The framework comprises four building blocks to consider: improving contracting practices, the enabling environment, the capacity of the PPP stakeholders, and information tools and services.

    AICD Country Report: Benin’s Infrastructure

    A Continental Perspective

    This study is a product of the Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic (AICD), a project designed to expand the world’s knowledge of physical infrastructure in Africa. The AICD provides a baseline against which future improvements in infrastructure services can be measured, making it possible to monitor the results achieved from donor support. It also offers a solid empirical foundation for prioritizing investments and designing policy reforms in Africa’s infrastructure sectors.  The focus of the AICD country reports is on benchmarking sector performance and quantifying the main financing and efficiency gaps at the country level. These reports are particularly relevant to national policy makers and development partners working on...
