PPP Development Stage – Selecting Options
11.6 What are the key issues relating to options for pro-poor
Whatever organisational and contractual options are selected,
all should first be focused at satisfying people’s needs,
especially those of the poor. The primary objective of the PPP
with respect to the poor is twofold:
- to expand the service systems in order to increase population
- to provide a better quality and more affordable service.
The option selecting and decision-making process should
be inclusive for all stakeholders, including poor consumers,
whose interests could be represented by NGOs and CBOs.
A significant part of organisational development, regulatory
framework building and human resources improvement
should be dedicated to poverty reduction strategies.
Organisational and contractual arrangements for PPPs
should be environmentally, socially, institutionally
and economically sustainable.
Selecting the right form of PPP should reduce shocks,
conflicts, deterioration of the environment and decreasing
wealth of livelihoods.
