Transparency and Disclosure in Public-Private Partnerships

Laurence Carter, Senior Director, Public-Private Partnerships World Bank Group

Clive Harris, Practice Manager, Public-Private Partnerships World Bank Group

Charles Kenny, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development

Public Private Partnerships in infrastructure alone in developing countries bring investment worth more than $100 billion a year. But such partnerships are often designed and implemented with little transparency –increasing the risk of unsustainable agreements and hindering the diffusion of best practice. At the request of the G20, the World Bank Group is working on a framework for public disclosure of information in Public-Private Partnership transactions. The World Bank Group has prepared a draft Framework for Disclosure in Public-Private Partnership Projects, a systematic structure for proactively disclosing information. The draft guidelines are open for public consultation and comment, and this event provides the opportunity to learn about the draft and provide feedback.
