Strengthening PPP good practice across Africa

The continued population growth across Africa has resulted in increased demand for infrastructure development. This has in turn driven a significant rise in the number of investors seeking opportunities in this region. To support this increase in demand, more and more countries across Africa are now seeking the public sector skills needed to run successful PPP contracts. 

Supporting global interest in the African PPP market 
The APMG PPP Certification program has been designed to improve the quality of PPPs worldwide and is already playing an important role in enhancing knowledge and establishing good practices for PPP professionals in Africa and across the globe.

The PPP Program aims to develop the capability of individuals responsible for the management of PPPs, supporting them to meet infrastructure demands and stimulate economic development.
