Public-private-partnerships (PPPs)

Resilience value is different for public and private sector stakeholders, and PPPs create the potential for resilience value to be understood and realised by all those involved.

This guidance note shares industry insights on the role that infrastructure PPPs play in driving best practice for resilience. ‘Best practice’ could include long term thinking, risk sharing, whole system approaches and recognising future uncertainty through adaptive planning for example.

Creating a common understanding of how different policy instruments can drive best practice will allow public and private organisations to deliver infrastructure projects that both prevent or mitigate against known shocks and stresses, and are able to respond better to those events that can’t be predicted or avoided.

The Resilience Shift is delighted to have supported it.
