The increasing population growth and urbanisation of emerging economies is driving an increase in demand for infrastructure investment across the globe. Historically, Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) have been used to connect public infrastructure projects with private investors, promising innovative solutions and improved resource allocation for emerging economies (OECD, 2012). However, recent PPPs have demonstrated that without clear goals, outcomes and strategic plans, these infrastructure projects can be exposed to a tremendous amount of risk for both parties, both in monetary and social terms.
