Documenting good practises in public-private
partnerships for infrastructure
We are inviting individuals and institutions
to document innovative cases of public-private partnerships
that bring basic services to the poor and has developed
a set of guidelines for this purpose.
The core focus is on documenting practices where for-profit
private-sector enterprises have entered into a formal,
legally binding partnership with the public sector.
Only practices that have already been operationalized
should be documented. We are looking for models that
could be applied in a number of different situations.
A practice that can only work at a particular place
or time will not usually be worth documenting. Similarly,
there is little point in documenting practices that
are already in widespread use, unless some important
new insight or information is revealed.
Documentation must identify and clarify the core principles
and components of a practice, the essential processes
involved and the key lessons learned. It needs to record
not only the success story, but also the problems encountered
and the failures experienced in implementing the practice.
These Guidelines attempt to cover all those important
aspects of documentation.
Individuals or institutions interested in documenting
an innovative practice that bring basic services to
the poor through a PPP are invited to fill-in a Type
A form and forward it to us (contact
us). The brochure provides more details on case
study identification and documentation. For your feedback,
please refer to contact us.
