Effective regulatory frameworks for public-private partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure development have become an important comparative advantage for countries’ ability to attract international investors in infrastructure services. According to estimates MENA governments plan to spend around USD 100 billion by 2015 only in the water sector. Given these estimates, regulators will have to use available resources including technical and material implementation capacity and private investment prepared to engage in long term risks in the most efficient way. This provides a strong argument for the provision of a transparent and predictable regulatory environment to make public-private partnerships (PPPs) work without wasting resources.
