Toolkit on Cross-Sector Infrastructure Sharing

The World Bank’s ICT Sector Unit initiated and sponsored the development of this web-based cross-sector infrastructure sharing toolkit which has been incorporated into the existing Broadband Strategies Toolkit as Module 8. It will serve as a neutral and comprehensive resource for all stakeholders in the joint use of passive infrastructure by telecommunications operators and public utilities and provide both a reference point and learning tool.

PPIAF supports the enabling environment in Guinea’s key infrastructure sectors

Guinea has one of the world’s largest reserves of natural resources, including deposits of bauxite, gold, iron, and other minerals. The country is also known as “the water tower of Africa,” which refers to its tremendous potential for hydropower. Despite such potential, Guinea is among the world’s poorest countries, with a GDP of about $6.62 billion in 2014 and a per-capita GDP of $527. 1 Recent estimates show that 55 percent of the population is now considered poor, representing an increase of six percent since 2002.

Disclosure in Public-Private Partnerships: Jurisdictional Studies

This volume contains detailed studies on the disclosure policy and practice of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in 13 jurisdictions. The jurisdictions were studied as part of the research and analysis carried out under the Disclosure in PPP Project jointly implemented by the World Bank Group Public-Private Partnerships Cross-Cutting Solution Area (WBG PPP CCSA), the Governance Global Practice (GGP), Construction Sector Transparency Initiative (COST), and Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF), and jointly funded by the WBG PPP CCSA and the PPIAF.


当私营服务供应商对土地上的附属资产进行投资,且私营贷方想要得到对这些资产的担保时,在土地上建立权力并对土地进行使用就成为了基础设施项目的关键。政府也非常希望能够保留其在公共资产中的权利,并随着时间的推移,获得其自身或公众付款的资产的权利。如果体系不可靠,或无法为土地使用者提供保护,那么就会对私营机构的投资产生不利影响,并造成政府的担心。 考虑基础设施项目对环境和社会的潜在影响也是项目规划和执行的关键。

About PPPLRC (PPP Legal Resource Center)

The Public-Private Partnership Legal Resource Center (PPPLRC) formerly known as Public-Private Partnership in Infrastructure Resource Center for Contracts, Laws and Regulations (PPPIRC) provides easy access to an array of sample legal materials which can assist in the planning, design and legal structuring of any infrastructure project — especially a project which involves a public-private partnership (PPP). It is organized in two broad categories: (i) guidance on structuring a PPP project and its enabling environment and (ii) sector specific information.

SMEs and PPPs

Among the many benefits that PPPs can bring, PPPs can build local capacity and expertise (resulting in more cost efficiencies), encourage increased competition, and create opportunities for broader economic growth. To enjoy such benefits, involving small and medium enterprises (SMEs)* in PPPs is key.

When progress can’t wait mediate

Mediation is simply a facilitated negotiation.  It is a very flexible format for resolving differences in international infrastructure projects, as each mediator can structure the process in the manner most appropriate to the situation.  Resolution achieved by mediation is not limited to remedies provided by law, allowing for bespoke settlements that satisfy both parties. The mediator’s job is straightforward, despite how complicated a situation may be: he or she discusses with the interested parties the issue at hand, drawing out their interests and exploring alternative solutions. It’s an especially effective solution for infrastructure projects, which, due to their scope, the number of different organizations involved, and the varied backgrounds and experiences of the people staffing those organizations, are particularly vulnerable to conflict. Through mediation, that conflict can be used to build (or re-build) a relationship, and sustain the partnership.

Systèmes de droit civil: termes clés prévus par la loi qui peuvent affecter les accords de PPP

Dans de nombreux pays de droit civil, une loi administrative distincte régit les accords de PPP. Un certain nombre de règles administratives clés applicables aux contrats de gestion déléguée sont énumérées ci-dessous [1]. Il est important d'obtenir des conseils juridiques locaux pour vérifier si ces règles sont applicables dans un système civil spécifique. Il est également important de souligner que, dans une juridiction de droit civil, le contrat sera exécuté par les tribunaux administratifs à moins que celui-ci précise que les parties ont convenu d'avoir recours à l'arbitrage.
