    The State of PPPs

    Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships in Emerging Markets & Developing Economies 1991-2015

    Governments have long acknowledged the key role infrastructure plays in economic growth and poverty reduction. As countries face growing demand for infrastructure, Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) continue to play a crucial role in improving efficiencies in delivering public services, one of the key elements to narrowing the infrastructure gap. This becomes even more important as history shows that shifting the development, maintenance, and operational risk on to the private sector often results in higher quality and overall better results than government provisioning. This report uses data from the PPI Database to analyze broad trends of PPP investment in infrastructure from 1991 to 2015. Specifically, it examines factors behind...

    PPP and Concession Project Finance in Brazil

    Estruturação de Projetos de PPP e Concessão no Brasil

    In order to contribute to the improvement of public procedures related to the structuring of infrastructure projects in Brazil, the IFC - International Finance Corporation and BNDES (by means of AEP – Project Structuring Division) joined efforts in the conception and coordination of an interdisciplinary study , which is aimed at analyzing and proposing recommendations to improve current mechanisms to prepare Concessions and PPPs - Public-Private Partnerships. This study does not rely only on pointing out and describing current problems. It also encompasses proposals and guidelines to improve the regulation, practices, and tools presently adopted in Brazil. The recommendations were consolidated into two decree drafts arranged by the...

    An Overview of the Brazilian PPP Experience from a Stakeholders’ Viewpoint

    There is a consensus among specialists, both economists and policymakers, that an adequate supply of infrastructure services is a key element for economic development. Under budgetary constraints, many countries have launched Public Private Partnership (PPP) programs to help cope with the need to improve their infrastructure. This paper reviews the current status of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), hereinafter “the Bank”, intervention on PPP in Brazil, including a stakeholders’ survey on the performance of the Brazilian PPP program.

    Private Participation in the Road Sector in Brazil

    Recent evolution and next steps

    Toll roads concessioning has not followed a straightforward path in Brazil. After the emergence of the concession model in 1993, a quick expansion followed. The program then paused during ten years, until 2007-2008 where a new expansion phase of the sector was initiated both by the Federal and State levels of government. In 2008 toll roads covered about 12,000 km, an extension that could potentially double in the medium run if the governments’ plans materialize. Most of the main roads in Brazil would then be operated as private concessions which, in turn, lead to good road performance, something vital to the economy. This paper aims at contributing to the ensuing policy discussion this situation would generate. It presents a limited...

    Performance Based Contracts in the Road Sector

    Towards improved efficiency in the management of maintenance and rehabilitation, Brazil's experience

    Performance based concept in the management of road maintenance and rehabilitation has been introduced in Brazil ten years ago, through the execution of the CREMA (contratos de reabilitacao e manutencao – Rehabilitation and Maintenance Contracts), under two World Bank-supported projects. The concept proved attractive and, as a result, spread progressively in the country, often with Bank support: by late 2008, more than 150 performance based contracts had been executed and close to 30,000 km, or 16 percent of the Federal and State cumulated paved networks, were managed under performance based contracts.

    Brazil: Suape Container Terminal

    As part of a major port sector reform program, the government of the northeastern Brazilian state of Pernambuco hired IFC as the principal advisor on the public-private partnership for the first dedicated container terminal (TECON) at the Port of Suape. International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI) of the Philippines won the public tender to build and operate the container terminal for 30-years. The agreement was signed on March 2001 and the container terminal began operations three months later.

    Brazil: Belo Horizonte Schools

    PPP Brief

    Belo Horizonte, the third largest city in Brazil, has made early education a priority in an effort to improve the competitiveness of its workforce in the long term and support the national government’s policy goals. With support from IFC, it turned to private sector funding and expertise to expand and strengthen its preschool and primary school system. The concession—Brazil’s first public-private partnership in the education sector—was awarded in July 2012. The project will expand access to early education in Belo Horizonte, reaching 18,000 additional children and creating new jobs in the education sector.

    Toward Cleaner, Cheaper Power Streamlined Licensing of Hydroelectric Projects in Brazil

    Brazil is confronted with steadily increasing demands for electricity. The country has the ability to meet that demand by developing its considerable hydropower potential, but the regulatory process that governs the approval of new hydroelectric plants imposes unnecessary delays that push up project costs and increase uncertainty. The process, among other reasons, has created a shortage of investment in otherwise viable hydropower projects in favor of less efficient and more harmful technologies. Brazil's electricity sector serves roughly sixty million residential and commercial customers and generates revenues of US$20 billion. With demand growing at a rate of 4.4 percent annually, an additional 3,000 megawatts of generating power will...

    Lecciones sobre la Asociación Público-Privada en la Creación de una Nueva Línea de Metro: el Caso del Metro de San Pablo

    El metro de San Pablo es una empresa pública perteneciente al Estado de San Pabloo. Inaugurada al comienzo de los años ’70, opera 62 km de líneas y transporta 700 millones de pasajeros por año. Es, muy seguramente, el mejor proveedor de transporte urbano masivo en Brasil al extremo que en San Pablo se menciona la “calidad metro” como un estándar de alta calidad de servicio. Esta Nota narra el proceso que condujo a que la nueva línea 4, Amarilla, del metro de San Pablo, sea construida y gestionada bajo criterios de asociación público-privada, esto es, insertando una línea concesionada al sector privado en un metro de gestión estatal, y describe la manera creativa en que los mayores riesgos del proyecto fueron distribuidos entre las...
