Despite not yet having its own PPP Law, Ghana has developed a promising PPP market in recent years. This report outlines that market, detailing existing regulatory frameworks, the national portfolio of PPP projects, timelines of activity within the market and the key players.
According to the World Bank analysis, Ghana is a regional leader in terms of PPP preparation and procurement. The country scored considerably higher than the Sub-Saharan African average when assessed against international PPP good practices. That its impressive pipeline (45 projects with a combined investment of approximately US$13.6 billion) is supported by good regulatory frameworks demonstrates the market’s potential.
With the National Policy on Public-Private Partnerships only having been adopted in 2011, the list of active PPP projects in Ghana better represents the fledgling nature of the national PPP market. There are only 17 projects currently in construction or operation. The majority of these are in the energy sector.
For more details of these projects, see the report’s index. This lists all of the PPP projects in development in Ghana in the InfraPPP database. Projects are organised by stage, with listings spanning from projects in planning to those in operation.
