As we progress in our ambitious year-long program with bi-weekly discussions, WAPPP is pleased to introduce the second session, focusing on the issues faced by Small-Scale Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). Building upon our initial foray into defining the scope and nature of Small-Scale PPPs, this session aims to delve deeper into the complexities they face.

In this upcoming discussion, we turn our lens toward the multifaceted challenges inherent in the implementation and operation of Small-Scale PPPs. These challenges encompass financing and investment difficulties, expertise gaps, risk management complexities, and legal as well as preparatory hurdles. Additionally, we will explore the impact of these partnerships on community engagement and social dynamics at the sub-national level.

Our conversation will not only illuminate the hurdles faced by Small-Scale PPPs but also pave the way for future sessions. The insights we gain will be instrumental in developing practical solutions and innovative strategies, with the goal of making Small-Scale PPPs more effective tools in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
