The core objective of the project is to diagnose key governance and capacity building bottlenecks to mobilizing financing through public private partnerships (PPP) for the Mediterranean water sector, and to support the development of consensual action plans based on international good practices. In particular, the project will focus on assessing the opportunities and institutional and regulatory challenges arising from public-private partnerships (PPPs) as a tool in the hands of policy makers to managing water resources and financing services in an effective, sustainable and affordable manner.
The project involves work at national and regional level over three years (2013-2015), and draws on established OECD methodology and previous work undertaken by GWP-Med and the OECD in Egypt and Lebanon.
Seven countries are participating in the first phase of this project: Albania, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and Palestine.
