Airport development is critical to economic growth and poverty reduction. This book will help decision-makers assess whether Public Private Partnerships (PPP) might be a viable option to meet their airport development requirements. It walks the reader through the airport PPP process, from early preparation to bringing the project to market and managing the project during implementation. The book will help eradicate misconceptions about the role of the private sector in airport infrastructure.
A Decision-Makers Guide to Public Private Partnerships in Airports provides an essential guide for those in a position to make decisions linked to airport development, to their advisers, their staff and also to students wishing to understand airport PPP.
