A Pilot in 10 Economies
The Benchmarking Public-Private Partnerships Procurement 2015 report aims to support and enhance the decisions that feed into policy-making by highlighting key aspects of a country’s PPP legal and regulatory framework. The project that the report is based on follows the successful approach undertaken by the World Bank Global Indicators Group, which, with its Doing Business project, has a recognized track record of measuring a country’s laws and regulations and leveraging reform. The Doing Business project assesses the business climate of 189 economies against recognized good practices. Since its inception in 2003, the Doing Business project has inspired close to 2,000 reforms in business regulation.

The research was conducted under the auspices of IFC’s Sanitation and Safe Water for All (SSAWA) program, which had identified the lack of information on small piped water systems as one of the barriers to market development.

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...
