Risk Sharing in Public-Private Partnerships: General Considerations and an Evaluation of the U.S. Practice in Road Transportation

This paper examines risks affecting Private-Public Partnership (PPP) projects in road infrastructure and the ways of sharing risk between the two partners. It provides a comprehensive typology of risks and, most importantly, attempts to identify PPP-specific risks or risks more likely to arise under a PPP arrangement than under traditional financing or complete privatization. The paper assesses the U.S. experience in the use of PPPs for road infrastructure and identifies the most important risk-factors.
