Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and other project financed transactions have in recent years considerably increased private sector´s participation in major infrastructure projects. PPPs bring unique challenges related to the need to allocate and balance the risks between the public and private sectors; financing based on the project´s expected revenue streams; and the different private sectors interests involved. All this results in PPP structures that are complex to negotiate, set up and operate.
