DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: PPP Capacity Building and Institutional Strengthening

In June 2020, the World Bank identified opportunities and challenges in private sector involvement for Dominican Republic's infrastructure services in a report. This followed the enactment of Law 47-20 by the Congress of the Dominican Republic, with the aim of improving the legal framework for public-private partnerships (PPPs). The General Direction for Public-Private Partnership (DGAPP) sought World Bank assistance for capacity building and developing a strong PPP framework. PPIAF supported this effort by advising the Dominican government on PPPs implementation based on international best practices. The scope involved assessing the legal framework, providing recommendations for a PPP manual, and conducting workshops like the APMG CP3P certification. The World Bank's PPP Manual recommendations, including climate and gender considerations, will soon be officially adopted by the DGAPP.
