    Port Reform in Nigeria : Upstream Policy Reforms Kick-Start One of the World's Largest Concession Programs
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2007-03) Leigland, James; Palsson, Gylfl
    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.

    Reform, Private Capital Needed to Develop Infrastructure in Africa : Problems and Prospects for Private Participation
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2006-05) Leigland, James; Butterfield, William
    In Sub-Saharan Africa, the overwhelming need for infrastructure has motivated regional economic organizations to push for an ambitious agenda of private participation. But to begin solving Africa's infrastructure investment problems will also require broad institutional reform along with greater financial commitments by governments and donors. The private sector appears capable of supplying only a fraction of the estimated US$5-12 billion a year in additional infrastructure finance that Africa needs to meet its Millennium Development Goals for infrastructure. Meeting Africa's infrastructure development challenges will require substantial increases in government budgetary allocations and official development assistance.
