Infrastructure development and financing are indispensable components of growth, and in Africa, they are essential building blocks to get on the path of sustainable development.
Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can help shorten delivery times, share risks, achieve better value for money, and increase infrastructure roll-out and service provision innovation. However, they are highly complex policy instruments that must be fully understood, and professionally implemented and managed to deliver on their potential.
The AIFP is the first infrastructure PPP training program built on deep involvement of governments, private sector actors and international organizations to strengthen your PPP capacity.
Senior civil servants will receive a robust mix of theoretical and practical training at no cost to your country’s administration. This will expand their understanding of procurement, governance, and the role of the private sector in infrastructure projects. They will also be supported by expert PPP practitioners after the end of the program.

The fellows come from the whole African continent. Their nationalities are diverse and varied to create synergies between countries and regions.
