Government of Nepal felt the need of Public Private Partnership (PPP) way back in the year 2000 AD when Govt framed "Public Infrastructures (Build, Operate and Transfer ) Policy , well as 10th plan adopted a policy of developing PPP for undertaking infra projects and providing services and implementing the plans with the cooperation and partnership with NGOs, civil society and private sector. These measures however did not help in promoting private investments for infrastructure development or service delivery in local bodies in the country.

Thereafter Government, on realizing that demand of infrastructure and services is growing with rapid pace of urbanization and the financial resources available with local bodies as well as Govt are not enough to meet the expectations of the citizens , decided to frame a National Public Private Partnership policy for local bodies to attract private investments to build basic infrastructures and provide quality services at the local level in a well organized , efficient, sustainable and easily accessible manner.

The manual provides for formation of PPP committee and co-ordination unit at a local body level, agencies who can identify partnership projects and enumerates the phases and processes for development of PPP projects. The manual guides on analyzing the projects, looking at their sustainability and risks involved and advises on the process of selecting the partner, etc.
