Abstract

This collection examines public-private partnerships (PPPs) in transitional nations from the governance perspective. It explores the structures, legal frameworks and collaborative arrangements that underpin partnerships in Europe, Asia and Africa, and highlights government decisions that facilitate the transformation of societal challenges into developmental opportunities. By sharing the experience of nine nations, including China, Indonesia, Russia and Nigeria, it helps to better understand the commonalities in PPP deployment, avoid mistakes and pitfalls, and learn from other economies. The book raises the critical questions that concern many governments, including: What are the common and frequent mistakes that governments make when they deploy partnerships and deal with governance issues? How can countries increase PPPs benefits? Can PPPs be instrumental in accomplishing certain less traditional government tasks, such as disaster risk management of built infrastructure and promotion of clean energy? Can PPPs serve as a backbone of entrepreneurial networks and contribute to sustainable development? The groundwork is laid out for contrasting and comparing successful and unsuccessful government actions, institutional, legal and financing initiatives and procedures, allowing one to make cross-country and cross-sectoral comparisons. Policy-makers, consultants, managers and others working in the PPP field will find this volume useful, as well as academics, as they can learn from the international comparisons and the experience of others.
