Finding the right funding composition for a project or a business initiative is always a challenge. Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are no exception, and are in fact often even more complicated. PPPs try to combine social, economic and financial objectives. They involve different partners from different backgrounds and with different financial sources.
Also the world of development finance is evolving and the role of subsidy and grants is changing. Different forms of finance (repayable, blended, social/ development impact bonds etc.) can be opportunities, but are often poorly understood by PPP practitioners. At the same time, private sector parties will always seek the business case.
In the workshop, PPPLab will share its knowledge on PPP financing strategies and engage the audience in practical steps of getting to innovative funding arrangements. A potential to scale and stage of development towards scale will greatly influence the funding opportunities; the workshop will also draw from PPPLab’s research on scaling and system change. As they are currently developing practical, actionable tools, this workshop serves as an opportunity to assess (and use) them.
PPPLab supports the PPP community in making PPPs work. By conducting action research that provides insights, lessons learned and very practical navigation tools and organizing webinars, workshops and PPPcafe’s, the PPPLab enhances knowledge on PPPs. Insights and tools are all open source, free for use, and useful for design, develop, frame or negotiate processes up to managerial tips & tricks for public-private partnerships, particularly in the water and food area.
