The Australian APEC Study Centre (AASC) has developed a new online course focused on PPPs and enhancing liveability.
This comprehensive course explores how Melbourne, the world’s most liveable city, delivers PPPs in infrastructure. Participants will be guided through each phase of developing and implementing PPPs, with a focus on promoting liveability throughout.
Within the Asia-Pacific region, significant infrastructure requirements exist, but often with limited financial resources from government. PPPs provide an alternative to traditional procurement methods, allowing the use of private sector capital and experience to help in building and maintaining public infrastructure, contributing to improved liveability outcomes.
As a leader in the delivery of PPPs, Melbourne provides a perfect case study for participants to build practical knowledge to apply when establishing and maintaining infrastructure projects that enhance liveability in their own cities.
Who is the course for?
The course has been specifically developed to provide practical learning that participants can actively use. With expert industry involvement, rich content and case studies, this course would suit:
· Public servants, government leaders and managers
· Development and private sector banks
· Members of the private sector
· Multilateral and bilateral donor agencies involved with PPP development
· Civil society and non-profit organisations
The course runs over 6 weeks, and requires a time commitment of approximately 2 hours per week.
