About the IFC and PPP Seminars

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has developed a series of systematic learning events on Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). These learning events will target government officials with the aim of developing a greater understanding of PPPs, building capacity, and encouraging them to implement their own successful PPP programs in their respective countries. Through a series of small seminars and workshops the aim will be to give an overview of PPPs in the respective sector, and through the use of case studies, illustrate past experiences and best practice from around the world.

IFC intends to develop 2-3 learning events per year in partnership with other donor agencies. The first of such seminars was a one-day event held in Dubai on April 13th, 2009, with a focus on the MENA and South Asia regions and the road sector. The second in the series, was a two-day event held in Dubai on November 4-5th, 2009, with a focus on the water, waste-water and desalination sectors.

The most recent seminar, and third in the series, was held in Cairo on the 12th-13th of April 2010 and focused on the port sector. The seminar was targeted towards high-level government officials from African and Middle Eastern countries with the aim of providing an educational forum on approaches to PPP‟s in the port sector, as well as to highlight different approaches to encourage and engage the private sector in infrastructure development.

Participants came from Benin, Egypt, Gambia, Kenya, Lebanon, Madagascar, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Senegal, Syria, and Tunisia.

The seminar was structured around a series of talks, case studies and panel discussions so as to encourage the sharing of ideas and best practices and create an interactive dialogue between participants and specialists from the IFC, World Bank, private investors, port operators and respective Ministries of Transport.
