It has been variously documented that the gap between infrastructure needs and availability will keep widening in the coming years especially with Nigeria’s increasing population, rapid urbanization, and competing demands for public resources. It is also recognized that this infrastructure gap cannot be filled without private and non-traditional funding sources. This certainly makes the poignant case for Public Private Partnerships (PPPs). This seminar initiative is borne out of the recognition of the enormous challenge posed by the infrastructure inadequacy in Nigeria, government’s budgetary and financial constraints to meeting the gap, the urgency to seek out feasible solutions involving the private sector and the need to understand the mechanics of such PPP structuring.
