Key challenges of infrastructure development in Asian Cities include high fiscal deficits of central and local governments, limited long-term funds in domestic markets, weak institutional frameworks, lack of project financial viability and poor project structuring.

This paper highlights alternative financing mechanisms and structures for urban infrastructure financing. These financing options, including Public Private Partnerships (PPP), could help cities gear up to not only meet the challenge of rapid growth but also become global cities with world class infrastructure.

We have provided details of a number of Case Studies demonstrating how PPPs and other structures can deliver value in a number of different sectors – and in various Cities across the Region.
