This chapter identifies best practices and develops clear guidelines for incorporating sustainability into transport PPPs.

Key Themes: Long-term Perspectives -Incentives – Monitoring

For sustainability to be effectively incorporated into a PPP project, it must be made explicit and measurable. Sustainable PPPs ensure that development simultaneously enhances the ability to adapt to environmental change and improves the quality of life and services available to people. The long-term focus of PPPs, as well as the strong partnerships they establish, demonstrate the strong sustainable development potential of PPPs. Governments bear the most responsibility in ensuring this potential is realised. Early and effective identification of sustainability issues, rewarding of tenders that consider sustainability and clear performance criteria can all assist in incorporating sustainability into PPPs.
