PPP Days - Geneva, February 21-24, 2012
UNECE - January, 2012:
The main objective of CECI in this area is to increase the expertise of governments to identify, negotiate, manage and implement successful public-private partnership projects (PPPs).
This will be done through exchange of knowledge and experiences of PPPs by member States, including experts from public and private sectors, particularly in the identification and testing of best practice.
The activities will result in guides on best practice, studies and innovative tools that can be used in capacity-building programmes and training. To achieve its objectives, CECI organizes meetings and conferences, drawing on the expertise of an international network of experts in the area of Public-Private Partnerships. It incorporates the work of the former PPP Alliance.
