It also found that strong collaboration between the public and private sector sides of the IDB Group is essential.

It is interesting that many factors determining the success or failure of PPP arrangements are common across regions, including those our blog highlights. Another relevant finding from IEG's PPP-related work, which coincides with the IADB's infrastructure PPP evaluation your comment refers to, is the importance of a good organizational framework, the right skill mix, and staff incentives. Without those in place, IFIs tend to struggle to develop a PPP pipeline.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=5151&1=default&2=en&3=" token="1-pc3QqPBnKxNuq--FRCu0R3eiLOpemfQTraIMIO1SU"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> </article></div> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-5216" class="js-comment"><mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1522677717"></mark><footer><article></article><p class="author">Submitted by <span>Anuj Agrawal</span> on Thu, 03/29/2018 - 23:18</p> <span class="perma-link"> <a href="" hreflang="en">Permalink</a></span> </footer><div> <h5><a href="" class="permalink" rel="bookmark" hreflang="en">I am of the view that…</a></h5> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>I am of the view that decline in PPP portfolio is not due to dearth of proper structuring and concession managing skills. We seem to have enough of that.<br /> The issue is we are not able to take the PPP projects to its full life i.e. till the end of concession period. 25/ 30 years is too long a period for the assumptions/ basis of project structuring to be valid/sacrosanct. No doubt, the renegotiation (I would prefer to use the word restructuring) of concessions faces the issues of sanctity of contract, competitive bidding adopted while awarding the project and similar transparency issues but we do not have any option except to accept it.<br /> So many in this field, feel the necessity but are not going ahead fearing from subsequent scrutiny by Regulating Agencies. The only way to handle it is to have transparent and detailed guidelines and implementation framework on the subject with least subjectivity.<br /> To me this appears to be the most important step to arrest and reverse the declining trend of investment in PPPs.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=5216&1=default&2=en&3=" token="yFGLu7uIX9JyeaRe7lCodiCoy9ZRj3IiX-X07m1-3BM"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> </article><article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-9536" class="js-comment"><mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1523286490"></mark><footer><article></article><p class="author">Submitted by <span>Adolfo Guerrero</span> on Fri, 04/06/2018 - 13:27</p> <span class="perma-link"> <a href="" hreflang="en">Permalink</a></span> </footer><div> <h5><a href="" class="permalink" rel="bookmark" hreflang="en">Great blog and many good…</a></h5> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Great blog and many good ideas poured on it. However, time and again the picture about what "institutional" investors are after is often lost. This investors are investing someone else's money and their earnings are attached to successful transactions. Therefore, they are as adverse to risks as any other financial institution, or even more. </p> <p>Greenfield projects, which account for the majority of the projects within those $1.8 trillion, are risky proposals that can barely capture a fraction of the money that those investors are able to mobilize, and as long as there are projects in the developed world, where the rule of law and the experience in this arrangements is already in place, projects in developing countries will be always a second or third priority, when not an exotic testimonial intervention, but rarely a tendency that will overcome the shortage of funding for infrastructure where is needed the most.</p> <p>The ones that take the initiative in developing those infrastructure remain pretty much within the developers and contractors with limited resources for bidding and investing, but they cannot be locked in on many projects an in many places. Most PPP frameworks developed do not acknowledge the possibility to change the share ownership or securitizing those assets, making it possible for other investors to take stakes on the capital once the business have become less risky.</p> <p>More than another guideline, or legal frameworks that are hard to enforce, these projects need to diminish the risks inherent to any new development and opening to the possibility for these institutional investors to invest on a fully functional system proven to produce results may be a step forward. Certainly the $ 1.8 trillion figure will still be needed to get the projects in place, but the moment that there is a secondary market feeding on projects developed, will certainly make easy to mobilize the primary market necessary to help those developers to carry on with the primary risks.</p> </div> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderLinks" arguments="0=9536&1=default&2=en&3=" token="syjQiBemSYFLNztr6MVv-Yl-9jtLq67dubY5FP_YSaw"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> </article><article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-12091" class="js-comment"><mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1523455442"></mark><footer><article></article><p class="author">Submitted by <span>Afzal Shah</span> on Tue, 04/10/2018 - 21:32</p> <span class="perma-link"> <a href="" hreflang="en">Permalink</a></span> </footer><div> <h5><a href="" class="permalink" rel="bookmark" hreflang="en">No. If it is about globe or…</a></h5> <div class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>No. If it is about globe or even bottom 40's. PPP's vary in accordance to the capacity, capabilities and most importantly will of state or governance structure and private individuals including multi national's demand and requirments. This is only possible when initiatives of PPP were designed, fixed with goals and time lines. Just wondering if sufficient research data findings available specifically for PPP sustainability is authenticated data? Don't we feel for more research with action's? </p> <p>What I understand it's wise to experiment focusing individuals rather than group's, organisations and companies especially non profit, it's an amazing debate to discuss forget them at moments but essence of time is to realise the realities and justifications for quality, design and impact especially the region who are supposed to be beneficial.<br /> Policy analysis very common terminology now a days but amezed to know anyalsis against what.<br /> Fixing many things would be great before problem specific solutions.

At the basis of any reasoning of development finance issues, there should be the demarcation line between the developer, the philanthropist and lender, who should have quite different criteria for interventions, being different the related market's niches. Starting from this bottom line we may build the models that match the sustainability factor. At the end of the day, we have to create jobs and empower people, if and when we want to alleviate poverty. "Give people a job, not a loan" is the subtitle of our eBook FINANCIAL INCLUSION. Actually this mean to phase out the financial way to development<br /> and replace it with the EMPLOYMENT-BASED WAY TO DEVELOPMENT, thus re-designing the entire architecture<br /> of the approach in favour of poor people. Again, there should be a demarcation line between Lender, developer and philanthropist, who should have a different criteria of intervention in the related market's niches.
