Guide: Understanding and Evaluating Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships in the Water Sector

This guide aims to help advocates, policymakers, and other stakeholders better understand and analyze water infrastructure project proposals, contracts, and related legislation.

We describe critical issues and include a list of key questions stakeholders can raise to ensure that a given project advances the public good. While this is not an exhaustive list of questions, it provides a useful framework to examine public-private partnerships (P3s) in the water sector.
