10 What is the difference between ‘privatization' and 'PPP'?

Privatization and PPPs are both forms of private sector participation in infrastructure service delivery. However, in PPPs the public sector retains underlying ownership of the asset and accountability for service delivery, while physical asset provision and service delivery is provided by the private sector in line with the PPP contract agreement. Risks and rewards in a PPP are allocated and shared in line with the PPP contract between the public and private sectors.

Privatization refers to the partial or full divestiture of government ownership of an asset. Thereafter asset maintenance and service is determined and provided by the new private owners. No risks and rewards are shared between the public and private sectors in privatization. The new private owners carry risks and rewards conferred by their full or partial ownership of the asset.
