A key motivation for governments considering public private partnerships (PPPs) is the possibility of bringing in new sources of financing for funding public infrastructure and service needs. This section provides an introduction to financing projects. It is not intended to be an exhaustive guide, but more details can be found in the materials in the Further Reading section. Financing of projects follows market trends and volatility and some of these trends may not be reflected in this section.
