Public-Private Partnerships (PPP): How can PPPs help deliver better services? by The World Bank Group on Coursera
May 12, 2016
Following the success of last year’s World Bank Group’s Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), the World Bank Group is pleased to announce that registration is currently open for the PPP MOOC in French which will launch on June 13th, 2016.
Increasing access to and enhancing the quality of basic infrastructure services remains a critical challenge, especially in developing countries. The numbers paint a clear picture: at least 663 million people lack access to safe drinking water, at least one-third of the world’s rural population is not served by an all-weather road, and over one billion people in the world still live without electricity.
When designed well and implemented in a balanced regulatory environment, PPPs can bring greater efficiency and sustainability to the provision of such public services as water, sanitation, energy, transport, telecommunications, healthcare and education.
This French version of the course will feature case studies from francophone countries in Africa and will aim to address how PPPs can deliver better infrastructure services around the world.
By directly addressing the opportunities and challenges of procuring and maintaining infrastructure through effective PPPs, participants will be able to determine when a PPP is the right choice for governments. The case studies from African francophone countries will allow participants to analyze PPP project implementation in the specific context of these countries.
