              Exploring Public-Private Partnership in the Irrigation and Drainage Sector in India: A Scoping Study
               

              Exploring Public-Private Partnership in the Irrigation and Drainage Sector in India: A Scoping Study (EPUB ebook)

              By Development Bank, Asian

              In spite of substantial investment by the Government of India, the country's irrigation and drainage sector finds itself plagued with numerous concerns. The current productivity and efficiency levels, as well as economic returns, are all lower than expected. In light of the growi...ng stress on natural resources and the threat of climatic change, meeting the needs of its growing population poses a huge challenge. To enhance the sector's performance, the central and state governments of India are now looking to decentralize the sector's management and seek collaboration with the private sector. This report is the result of a scoping investigative study initiated by the Asian Development Bank to explore the potential for public-private partnerships in the irrigation and drainage sector in India. It identifies the areas where private sector participation can be envisaged in consonance with the current national policy framework; examines the legal and institutional status, and presence of national and international best practices; and suggests public-private partnerships models appropriate to Indian conditions.

              Public-Private Partnership Operational Plan 2012-2020: Realizing the Vision for Strategy 2020: The Transformational Role of Public-Private Partnerships in Asian Development Bank Operations
               

              Public-Private Partnership Operational Plan 2012-2020: Realizing the Vision for Strategy 2020: The Transformational Role of Public-Private Partnerships in Asian Development Bank Operations (EPUB ebook)

              By Development Bank, Asian

              The Public-Private Partnership Operational Plan 2012-2020 provides a consistent analytical and operational framework for scaling up public-private partnerships (PPPs) in support of Strategy 2020. The PPP operations of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) are based on four pillars: (i...) advocacy and capacity development, (ii) enabling environment, (iii) project development, and (iv) project financing. Applying PPP principles holistically to ADB operations holds the potential to vastly improve the quality of design and outputs of PPP projects in support of Strategy 2020 targets. It also provides ADB with an opportunity to significantly leverage its limited resources in attracting private sector investments and commercial financing to meet the Asia and Pacific region's huge and growing infrastructure investment needs.
