How to Promote Infrastructure PPPs in MENA

By Mhamed Biygautane

PPPs in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are often restricted to technology-intensive sectors. To date, they have rarely been adopted in social infrastructure projects. The two key factors underlying the lack of PPPs in a wide range of social services, are the traditional dominance of the state and insufficient capacity of the private sector.

In many post-colonial MENA countries, the state continues to play a more significant role in the economy, and cases of successful privatisation and a larger involvement of private finance in infrastructure delivery remain the exception and not the rule. A range of reforms is needed to fill current PPP pipelines with projects that can provide social services and necessary infrastructure.

This briefing puts forth six recommendations that help facilitate a broader implementation of PPPs in the MENA region.
