Alliances and Public Private Partnerships
Governments and donors are looking towards the future and are seeking to develop more partnerships with the private sector and building strategic alliances with the participation of a variety of stakeholders. Building alliances offers a modern innovative approach that brings stakeholders together to achieve mutual benefit for a vision of development and sustainability, thus addressing the limitations of traditional development assistance in countries, and stimulating private sector participation and increased infusions of investment funds.
ECO Consult has been involved in the design and development of innovative ways to spur cooperation between private sector groups, government, non-governmental organizations, citizens, and local governments in order to revitalize and advance local economies and achieve certain objectives. Our approach is demand driven and consultative, ensures long-term sustainability, and relies on extensive participatory approaches and input from different stakeholders.
Public Private Partnership (PPP) Due Diligence and Transaction Advisory
ECO Consult carries out PPP due diligence analysis as part of a project's planning phase to ensure that it is well developed and designed. This is needed to ensure that PPPs are successful and fulfill the objectives for which they were designed in the first place, most specifically for risk analysis and risk allocation, and for assessment of financial viability, which includes the financial assessment of the selected PPP model and conditions under which the project can be financially successful. Our PPP due diligence services include concept analysis and review of business model in terms of implementability and marketability, Value for money analysis, and confirms that the project is in principle ready for a PPP arrangement. PPP due diligence studies are usually conducted as part of projects' feasibility studies and contribute to the successful design of a PPP arrangement.
