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.

Upstream policy reforms kick-start one of the world’s largest concession programs
Over a two-year period, beginning in late 2004, the Nigerian federal government implemented one of the most ambitious port concessioning programs ever attempted. The success of this program resulted from the government’s vision and decisiveness, as well as the need to remedy massive shortcomings in the sector, which were sharply inhibiting economic development. But the program also benefited strongly from policy reform recommendations made by PPIAF-funded consultants in 2002. The role of these “upstream” policy and planning recommendations highlights the value of best practice steps for creating an enabling environment in which sustainable arrangements for the private participation in infrastructure can be concluded.

A Study for the UK Department for International Development (DFID)
This report was produced by Cambridge Economic Policy Associates (CEPA) as part of a wide-ranging research programme funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) that explores the factors constraining the provision of private finance to support infrastructure investment in DFID’s focus countries.
This report provides an overview of the market for infrastructure finance in Nigeria (focusing on economic infrastructure sectors: energy, transport and water) using evidence gained from sixteen consultations held with stakeholders (in the period December 2014 to February 2015) and complementary desk-based research.
The study provides background on the key policy reforms implemented by the government of Nigeria in an...
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...
