When private investment is brought to a public project, there is an inherent tension present in both the financing and implementation, which manifests in the balance between risk and cost.

What are the lessons learned by those that have done these kinds of projects? This session will help finance officers understand when and under what conditions to utilize this financial and project implementation tool.
