Public–Private Partnership in Developing Countries: Seeking Available Domestic Financing Options

Lusekelo Mwakapala and Baiqing Sun
Abstract—Decisions to finance infrastructure projects should be based on the best option that suits and meets project objectives for given government demand. Option, limits and risk assessments must be analyzed. Large investments are required for infrastructure projects with a long maturation period. Thus, classifying channels through which public, institutional, and private finances can be used to leverage financial gaps is no longer necessary. One way is for developing countries to use small-scale infrastructure projects, which can be domestically funded by private sectors in combination with government budget. Using commercial or investment banks (development banks) and untapped financial sources from pension funds (institutional) can provide enormous opportunities.

Index Terms—Infrastructure, financing, public–private partnership.
