How to mitigate the impact of the financial crisis on PPPs
12 January 2009

The French Institute for PPP (IGD - Institut de la Gestion Déléguée) released in November its proposals to mitigate the impact of the financial crisis on PPPs in France. IGD suggests to address the issue of lack of liquidity through the delinking of the duration of contracts and the duration of loans that would allow the short-term financing of projects and its long-term refinancing when market conditions will be more favourable, and the creation of a special public vehicle that would be entitled to collect and provide long-term resources to support banks activities.

IGD also proposes to reduce the impact on costs through a special state warranty on local authorities’ projects, and calls for a broader public support through investment subsidies when construction periods are important.
