Public private partnerships (PPP) are used extensively in the provision of public services but who bears the risk in such schemes. This new research report takes a new and different perspective on PPP schemes by examining the perceptions of risks from the perspective of the financiers and then comparing this to the perceptions of their public sector partners.
