PPP Financing, Policy and Law Master Class

Johannesburg, South Africa,
16 - 19 August 2016

PPP Financing, Policy and Law Master Class

A Unique and Outstanding Combination of Intensive Trainings on PPP Financing, Policy and Law to address the Current Key Challenges in Africa Market

Be INSPIRED. The key in unlocking the real potential of Africa lies in its infrastructure. Merely grasping the concepts of PPP does not do justice to our great responsibility and ensure success in Africa’s future development. We already know what we need to do, now is the time to really discover and learn HOW.

Successful PPPs have one thing in common: a solid and sound structure fuelled by interdependence from all stakeholders involved. Besides a shared vision, we require the knowledge and the capacity to MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Capacity building starts NOW. We need to understand the critical success factors of PPPs and how concepts translate into real progress, anticipate draining inhibitors, find effective solutions, learn from tried and tested best practices and most importantly, move beyond them and explore the avenues to INNOVATE.

This master class aims to do just that.

Beginning with an in-depth understanding of how PPPs and project finance work, to policy and law, all the way to contract mechanisms, financial structuring and risk analysis, we seek to push our participants to master and innovate, with the aid of a good number of carefully designed group exercises and case studies.

The final day of the course will be devoted to a series of case studies of actual current projects in the power, transport and social infrastructure sectors in Africa, which will demonstrate how the theoretical knowledge gained in days 1-3 is applied in practice.

PPP frameworks already exist or are being put into place in many countries in Africa (e.g. South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zambia, Angola etc). However the number of actual projects, especially those successful ones, remains low. One of the key challenges to further progress is capacity building in both the public and private sectors to address the faced bottlenecks.

This course will combine intensive trainings on PPP financing, policy and law, and concentrate on a practical approach to procuring and structuring PPP projects, with a strong emphasis on real-life examples. The theoretical project management, financial and legal frameworks will be studied in detail, and case studies will then be used to show how the theory works in practice.
