Institutional strengthening concerning transport infrastructure financing

Institutional capacity plays a key role in transport infrastructure financing, especially concerning private participation through concessions. This applies in a more relevant way for developing and transition countries, in which public administration has a lower level of institutional capacity and private participation in this field is more necessary. Within this framework, capacity building programs addressed at public agencies in charge of transport infrastructure financing are becoming more and more relevant. This paper aims at examining the experience of the Spanish public administration carrying out technical assistance projects in Eastern countries. The Spanish administration has a broad experience in bidding and awarding processes of concessions and a very advanced legal framework regulating this field - which have been passed recently - and is becoming a landmark for many countries. Based on the experience of the capacity building programs carried out by Spanish institutions, both public and private, an outline of a methodology for the implementation of this kind of projects is provided.
