About Us

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) address the World Bank Group’s twin goals – eliminating extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity – by enhancing the reach and quality of the delivery of basic services including infrastructure.

When designed well and implemented in a balanced regulatory environment, PPPs can bring greater efficiency and sustainability to the provision of such public services as water and sanitation, energy, transport, telecommunications, health care and education. PPPs also allow for better allocation of risk between public and private entities, taking into account their capacity to manage those risks.
