Public Private Partnerships (PPP) - Wind Energy

From energypedia

► Back to Wind Portal


This article introduces some Public private partnerships (PPP) in a cooperation arrangement between GIZ and private businesses covering the joint planning, financing and implementation of projects/programmes in developing countries and transition states.
This PPP presuppose a long-term commitment on the part of the private business rather than a focus on their own short-term business interests and rapid profits. Development project / programmes and private-sector commitment can complement one another and aim to achieve efficient and sustainable results.
PPPs must be compatible with the development-policy objectives of the German Government[1].
