Gridlines share emerging knowledge on public-private partnership and give an overview of a wide selection of projects from various regions of the world. Gridlines are a publication of PPIAF (Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility), a multi-donor technical assistance facility. Through technical assistance and knowledge dissemination PPIAF supports the efforts of policy makers, nongovernmental organizations, research institutions, and others in designing and implementing strategies to tap the full potential of private involvement in infrastructure.

Over a two-year period, beginning in
late 2004, the Nigerian federal government implemented one
of the most ambitious port concessioning programs ever
attempted. The success of this program resulted from the
government's vision and decisiveness, as well as the
need to remedy massive shortcomings in the sector, which
were sharply inhibiting economic development. But the
program also benefited strongly from policy reform
recommendations made by PPIAF-funded consultants in 2002.
The role of these upstream policy and planning
recommendations highlights the value of best practice steps
for creating an enabling environment in which sustainable
arrangements for the private participation in infrastructure
can be concluded.
