    9. 9. Challenges in MENA countries • PPPs have been implemented on an ad hoc basis expect in the Power and Utilities sector • Only 2 countries have established PPP units (Egypt and Kuwait) • Limited forward looking planning for the implementation of projects has resulted in too many projects being considered as PPPs and abandoned for a variety of reasons: • • Initial launch of a mega project rather than a project which is ”bite size” • Not involving all the stakeholders from the outset • Very rosy business case impeding bankability • Lack of availability of funding from local sources as well as long term financing • Page 9 Lack of understanding of PPPs Preference for legacy delivery models For presentation purposes: no reliance
    10. 10. Key success factors to enhance PPP delivery Market creation (e.g. subsidies, grants, guarantees) PPP Law such as Egypt and Kuwait Page 10 Education (politicians decision makers and public at large) Viable projects which are bankable Identifiable pipeline of projects For presentation purposes: no reliance Public Sector drive the process and not the private sector Risk balance between private and public sector, e.g. demand risk
