Course Description

P-12 Risk Distribution in PPPs prepares students to navigate outcomes faced in risk distribution and the inherent effects it introduces for both the government and the private sector.

Through case studies and practical activities, participants will explore the distinctions between financing for and funding of PPP projects while considering risk allocation, the government’s willingness to share risks, and the impacts on its financial interests.

In addition, this course will explore types of public-sector risk-sharing, appropriate mitigation strategies in the contract phase, and managing risk through the completion of the project.
