Workshop: PPPs in the road sector
There is a need to continue with PPP training in Kenya and across Africa as more and more government consider PPPs as viable financing models for large infrastructure projects. While there are currently multiple opportunities for PPP training, in practical terms each project and region will also come with its own set of unique challenges and opportunities.
The fact that only 6 out of 70 PPP projects have achieved commercial or financial close is a clear indication of the challenges being faced by the teams that are developing these projects.
This workshop is specifically aimed at those working in the road infrastructure sector and will provide specific road sector examples and learnings.
As the Kenyan government enacts the Public-Private Partnerships (Amended) Act, 2017 the time is perfect to understand not only the basics of PPP deals around the world but also to gain insight into the specific requirements for these types of deals in Kenya and other parts of Africa.
This workshop is designed as a hands-on training opportunity for people already working on projects which are at various stages in the PPP process. It is aimed at giving practical solutions by learning from various PPP projects from other parts of the world as well as enabling the participants to learn from each other.
