Increasing the transparency, participation and accountability of Public-Private Partnership infrastructure projects: Lessons learnt from CoST Honduras

Increasing the transparency, participation and accountability of Public-Private Partnership infrastructure projects: Lessons learnt from CoST Honduras

In 2017 CoST Honduras became the first member of the initiative to focus on heightening transparency, participation and accountability in Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects. In taking on this endeavour, a collaborative partnership with the World Bank alongside innovation and determination was key to bringing key issues to light. This led to important project and sectoral change, preventing an unsustainable project from moving forward and contributing to institutional reform.

Many lessons can be learnt from this experience in both Honduras and elsewhere. The key lessons are outlined in this paper.
