Webinar: Risk Allocation in Public Private Partnerships
June 21, 2017
Webinar recording from 21st June 2017.
Risk allocation is at the centre of every PPP transaction, and a deep understanding of the risk allocation arrangements is a precondition to the drafting of every PPP agreement. The appropriate application of risk allocation principles is what determines whether a given PPP project will be bankable, and whether it will be able to remain viable though to the end of its concession.
The Global Infrastructure Hub (an organisation established by the G20 group of nations to grow the global pipeline of quality, bankable infrastructure projects) has committed to delivering guidance that will enable governments to take public-private partnership projects to market faster and more cost-effectively, and help to address the trillion dollar infrastructure gap worldwide.
Working with Norton Rose Fulbright, the GI Hub has produced an interactive online PPP risk allocation tool to assist governments and stakeholders in building a pipeline of viable PPP infrastructure projects. The tool provides a database searchable by project type and risk type, for developed and emerging markets. The results provide information on the risk allocation between the public and private sectors in previous PPP transactions, along with related information on measures to mitigate issues and typical government support arrangements.
This webinar will focus on what constitutes effective risk allocation as well as an introduction to how the tool works and discussion of some of the key issues set out in the tool.
