INVOLVING THE PRIVATE SECTOR IN URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE. IN: EXPERT MEETING AND SYMPOSIUM ON THE SEMINAR ON FUTURE ROAD TRANSPORT SYSTEMS AND INFRASTRUCTURES IN URBAN AREAS, JUNE 4-6, 1991, CHIBA, JAPAN

The financial constraints presently faced by National and Local authorities when they have to provide new infrastructure - and transport networks in particular - force these authorities to consider alternative ways of financing and managing infrastructure. In that respect, the participation of private capital and knowledge can relieve the pressure on public budgets. This paper describes and attempts to assess the six main forms of involvement of the private sector: (1) Negotiated contributions; (2) Joint public-private organizations; (3) Joint venturing; (4) Contracting out; (5) Concessions; and (6) Privatization.
