Summary: Private participation in infrastructure has moved to the top of the political, economic, and social agendas of a growing number of countries. The focus of the debate is beginning to shift from the why to the how, fueling the demand for lessons on best practice in reform strategies, regulatory frameworks, institutional arrangements, and risk mitigation. For policy makers, private investors, and consumers alike, the key challenge is to use the lessons of positive and negative experience in other countries and sectors in devising arrangements for private participation in infrastructure that are fair, predictable, and sustainable and, above all, that deliver better services and greater efficiency. This collection of policy briefs on private participation in infrastructure responds to this demand. Drawing on a wide range of experience in different countries and sectors, these briefs seek to broaden understanding on risk allocation, institutional arrangements, choice of regulatory rules, and the scope for competition in infrastructure provision.
