The Model Legislative Provisions and the Legislative Guide on Public-Private Partnerships were prepared by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and adopted at its fifty-second session (Vienna, 8–19 July 2019).
The Model Legislative Provisions translate into legislative language the advice given in the recommendations contained in the Legislative Guide and the Model Legislative Provisions are intended to assist in the establishment of a legislative framework favourable to public-private partnerships (PPPs). The user is advised to read the Model Legislative Provisions together with the Legislative Guide, which provides background information to enhance understanding of the legislative recommendations.
The Model Legislative Provisions and the Legislative Guide update, expand and replace two earlier texts prepared by UNCITRAL, namely the Legislative Guide on Privately Financed Infrastructure Projects (2000) and the Model Legislative Provisions on Privately Financed Infrastructure Projects (2003).
