Abstract

Governments around the world including developed and developing economies are grappling with the challenge of wide infrastructure deficits. The case of the African continent is even more critical. Considering also that the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals aim to “leave no one behind,” it becomes imperative to explore avenues to allow the private sector to finance and deliver infrastructure. Public-Private Partnership is now considered as one of the most successful global strategies to support the public sector in the provision of infrastructure. This paper examines the role of Public-Private Partnership in the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals vis-à-vis the role of sub-national governments in ensuring a viable framework for the successful arrangement and execution of Public-Private Partnership projects. The methodology adopted for the paper a doctrinal review of literature and case studies on the subject. The paper recommends the engagement of stakeholders and the strengthening of sub-national frameworks for sub-national Public-Private Partnership.
