What are public-private partnerships?
There is no standard, internationally-accepted definition of a PPP. The term is used to describe a wide range of types of agreements between public and private sector entities, and different countries have adopted different definitions as their PPP programs evolved. Typically a PPP is a long-term contract between a private party and a government entity, for providing a public asset or service, in which the private party bears significant risk and management responsibility.
