Pan-African Interactive Workshop on PPP Contracts for Sustainable Infrastructure

November 13, 2018 7:00 pm - November 15, 2018 7:00 pm

Johannesburg, South Africa

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the Heinrich Böll Foundation (HBF) will co-host a Pan-African Interactive Workshop on Public–Private Partnership (PPP) Contracts for Sustainable Infrastructure in Johannesburg, South Africa, November 14–16, 2018.

Countries across Africa are looking for ways to accelerate much needed infrastructure development. In response to this need, a number of international organizations and countries are developing tools and guidance on infrastructure development, promoting the use of PPPs for infrastructure, and proposing corresponding PPP contract models. 

The goal of this Pan-African workshop is to help establish strategies and structures that help maximize the sustainable development benefits of all infrastructure development, and to ensure that PPPs, when used as an infrastructure tool, fit fully and properly into the process of maximizing these benefits. It will also build an understanding of the relationship between infrastructure and sustainable development, as well as of the role of PPPs—and PPP contracts in particular—in this process.
