Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility – PPIAF
Briefing on the PPIAF
The Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) was created in 1999. It is housed within the World Bank and it aims to fund “technical assistance on strategies and measures [governments] can use to tap the full potential of public-private partnerships in infrastructure”. It also disseminates information about “best practice” in public-private partnerships or PPPs. PPIAF works in a range of sectors including transport, telecommunications and water. Water makes up approximately 20 per cent of PPIAF’s work.
