World Bank Group Support to Public-Private Partnerships

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) have seen a rise in the last two decades and are now used in more than 134 developing countries, contributing about 15-20 percent of total infrastructure investment. Nonetheless, most developing countries - and the World Bank Group itself in its latest strategy, A Stronger, Connected Solutions World Bank Group - continue to see significant potential and need for expanded use of PPPs to help overcome inadequate infrastructure, which constrains economic growth.
