India: Supporting Public–Private Partnerships for Infrastructure Development

Sovereign (Public) Project | 48230-001 Status: Closed

The TA builds on the experiences with the first phase of Department of Economic Affairs (DEA)-Asian Development Bank (ADB) public-private Partnership (PPP) Initiative to mainstream PPPs and helps address the emerging challenges to ensure long-term impact of the PPP Initiative. The TA will (i) provide focused support to selected states and central line ministries with emphasis on delivery of projects through PPP experts; (ii) assist at the central level, DEA PPP cell, to continue to play its crucial role of structuring and appraising new PPP projects, and supporting a PPP enabling environment; (iii) help DEA support transitioning to 3P India (a proposed institution with the necessary expertise for supporting PPPs), which would be a sustainable model for providing long-term support for PPPs.

Description The TA builds on the experiences with the first phase of Department of Economic Affairs (DEA)-Asian Development Bank (ADB) public-private Partnership (PPP) Initiative to mainstream PPPs and helps address the emerging challenges to ensure long-term impact of the PPP Initiative.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has been assisting the Government of India''s (GoI) public-private partnership (PPP) program to meet the country''s large infrastructure needs. The GoI-ADB initiative in mainstreaming of PPPs has been an evolving and structured step-wise approach, supported through a series of TA projects designed to mainstream PPPs in the country. Following a joint review by the GoI and ADB of first phase of ADB support to the GoI for mainstreaming PPPs, the GoI requested ADB for a new TA to further the PPP agenda. The TA builds on the experiences with the first phase of DEA-ADB PPP Initiative and helps address the emerging challenges to ensure long-term impact of the PPP Initiative. The TA is in line with ADB''s Country Partnership Strategy (CPS), 2013-2017, for India.
