Public Private Partnership in Ethiopia
The investment in infrastructure and public service delivery has traditionally been the sole domain of governments around the world. This is partly due to the huge cost of investment and the fact that the returns on such investments take a longer time to be realized. The state of infrastructure
in many developing countries tends to be poor and inadequate to meet the rising demand. This reveals the constraints that governments in developing countries and especially in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), face in terms of scarcity of funds, corruption, poor planning and project formulation, as well as inefficient capacities. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) have emerged as one of the ways to overcome these constraints.
