Regional: Infrastructure Public-Private Partnership Pipeline Development Support

Sovereign Project | 48350-001

Project preparation is arguably the largest challenge that stands between developing countries and a sustainable pipeline of projects prepared for private participation. The objective of the proposed TA is to help developing countries better prepare infrastructure projects that can secure private sector financing and proceed to implementation. The TA will focus on preparatory due diligence work to enable infrastructure projects qualify to access funding from international or national project preparation facilities for further preparation and structuring as PPP. The TA will target developing countries in Asia and the Pacific, with priority to Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries.

Description

Project preparation is arguably the largest challenge that stands between developing countries and a sustainable pipeline of projects prepared for private participation. The objective of the proposed TA is to help developing countries better prepare infrastructure projects that can secure private sector financing and proceed to implementation. The TA will focus on preparatory due diligence work to enable infrastructure projects qualify to access funding from international or national project preparation facilities for further preparation and structuring as PPP. The TA will target developing countries in Asia and the Pacific, with priority to Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries.

The APEC in its roadmap for supporting PPPs recognized that PPP projects need to be well-prepared and structured before they are brought to the market. Adequate due-diligence and preparation of technical, legal, financial, economic, environmental and social issues are necessary for government to assess trade-offs and select an optimal structure for the transaction that is attractive to potential private investors. To improve project readiness, it is useful for governments to develop a checklist and an administrative system that could indicate whether a project is ready to be brought out to the market. Management capacity in the government, particularly in contracting agencies, needs to be further developed to more effectively and efficiently bring projects forward to completion. For markets at an early stage of development, delivering a few good examples of successful PPP projects within a reasonable time, rather than focusing on quantity of projects, is a most effective strategy for attracting investors.

The proposed TA will have two components.

(i) Component 1: Provide support for diagnostics application to project preparation facilities. The TA will support the DMC government implementing government agencies in various aspects of PPP development such as project appraisal, risk assessment and risk sharing, bidding process, legal implications of PPP contracts, monitoring and management of project implementation. Criteria for choosing projects to be supported by the TA will be established. Projects with regional cooperation and integration components will be given priority. Lessons learned during project preparation will be compiled and regional and subregional knowledge sharing events will be design to disseminate these findings.

(ii) Component 2: Provide project preparation support through the use of International Infrastructure Systems Support Platform. The TA will support DMC government implementing agencies in using the International Infrastructure Systems Support (IISS) platform to preparing their projects. The platform will enable implementing agencies to access an online, multi-user, secure work platform that provides guidance and templates that have been developed with strong private sector inputs to help increase the agencies' likelihood of developing well-structured projects that will attract private sector investors and contractors and increase public sector financing options, including PPPs.
