Financial and risk assessments of proposed projects have become necessary for countries considering PPPs for infrastructure projects. These assessments are essential to attracting private investors. This is particularly important for countries with substantial needs in infrastructure rehabilitation and expansion. The course primarily focuses on the review and applications of: (a) the financial models of the Toolkit for PPP in Roads and Highways (graphical and numerical, including multi-sector adaptations of the models), which have proven quite successful for preliminary financial evaluations when detailed data and financial arrangements are not yet fully defined; and (b) the GIH risk matrices for PPP in transport, energy, water and sanitation sectors.
This course provides a review of essential concepts and available toolkits, case studies, hands-on conceptual and numerical exercises. Attendees of the ILI course on Financial and Risk Analysis of projects will deepen their understanding on the key principles behind PPPs (also known as P3s), alternative delivery methods, financial and risk assessments, and the role they can play in improving service quality, addressing O&M challenges, and delivering essential infrastructure (e.g. transport, energy, water, wastewater, building) projects.
* Workshop participants are encouraged to obtain, prior to the workshop, basic data available on an existing or proposed PPP project of their interest, to be analyzed during the course. If this is not feasible, pro forma project data will be provided at the course.
The seminar will be delivered through 5 live online sessions via videoconferencing platform. Each session will last approximately 3.5 hours and will start at a time to be announced closer to the seminar, but the starting time will be within a time window of 7:00 am – 8:30 am Washington DC time (Eastern Standard Time). We expect the classes to be highly interactive and will include presentations, case studies and exercises.
