Training-of-Trainer / Capacity Building Workshop on Public-private Partnerships (PPP)

21 Mar 2016 to 25 Mar 2016
Bangkok, Thailand

The ESCAP secretariat has been implementing a number of activities to assist member countries in attracting private sector financing in infrastructure development. As part of this continuous effort, the ESCAP Transport Division will be conducting a “Training-of-Trainer Capacity-Building Workshop on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)” at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok from 21 to 25 March 2016.

The objective of the workshop is to enhance the capacity of government officials to identify, develop and manage PPP infrastructure projects by developing in participating countries a pool of qualified local trainers who can organize national training courses to disseminate at the local level the knowledge and skills that are critical for assessing, managing and implementing infrastructure projects under PPP modalities.

The workshop is organized as part of United Nations Development Account on “Building capacity and facilitating private sector involvement for infrastructure development for less developed countries in the Asia-Pacific Region”, which targets four less developed countries, Bhutan, Cambodia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, and Myanmar.
