Public-Private Partnerships for Infrastructure Development in the Arab Region

The Arab region is facing major challenges in terms of private participation in infrastructure investment. This paper advocates for a proactive involvement of ESCWA by establishing an Arab public-private partnership (PPP) platform. The activities performed under the umbrella of such a platform would include advising the Governments of member countries on best practice and assisting them in the following: identifying domestic projects to be carried out through PPPs; creating regulatory and institutional frameworks to support the development of PPPs; building the capacity of the public sector to implement PPP projects; and providing support to cross-border PPP projects.
