Public-private partnerships for infrastructure investment: a global perspective

As we emerge from the global pandemic, investing in infrastructure is critical to re-ignite our global economy and to achieve our environmental and social objectives. However, given the resulting financial pressures, governments alone may not be able to bear the full financial burden. A reappraisal of the role of private sector investment and appropriate funding models internationally, including public-private partnerships (PPPs) by whatever name, is both vital and timely.

In a new global report, produced in partnership with Global Infrastructure Investor Association (GIIA), DLA Piper assesses the case for PPPs, backed by multijurisdictional analysis from our projects and infrastructure lawyers around the world as well as insight from leading infrastructure investors who are fellow members of the GIIA.

The purpose of the report is to stimulate discussion with policy makers around the benefits of the PPP model, with examples from around the globe. If you would like to discuss any of the issues raised in more detail please contact one of us or any of the contacts listed in the report.

Panel discussion

On Wednesday, 28 April at 2pm (GMT) - DLA Piper and GIIA hosted a webinar to discuss the key themes and findings of the report, including an assessment of the various different models of public-private partnerships used around the world.
