Since March 2018, the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) has partnered with Safe Water Network to support the Government of Ghana in identifying the most effective approaches to improving the enabling environment for private-sector engagement in Ghana’s water supply. Through this partnership, we are working to understand the scale and capacity gaps of private service providers in the water sector, and draft recommendations for a public-private partnership (PPP) policy framework. Our work with PPIAF also includes scoping of a pooled fund, the Ghana Water Enterprise Trust, to attract investment and provide financial stewardship for community water supply at scale.

PPIAF is a global facility dedicated to strengthening the policy, regulatory, and institutional underpinnings of private-sector infrastructure investment in emerging markets and developing countries. PPIAF catalyzes private participation through PPPs, market-based financing of sub-national entities, and by supporting the generation, capture, and dissemination of best practices regarding private-sector involvement in infrastructure.
