This draft report reviews literature on Private Public Partnerships (PPP) that is of most relevance to the transport sector of developing countries. The role of a PPP arrangement to assist with the provision of rural transport is also considered. Issues such as competition, privatisation, regulation, contracts, the sharing of risk, finance, tariff setting, subsidies, the role of build, operate and transfer (BOT) schemes, competitive tendering and the setting up of a PPP are examined.
An annotated bibliography is included in the Annexes of the report and additional material is presented on UK bus deregulation, cartel policy, downsizing and retrenchment, and the buying out of capacity.
