Washington, DC. A team of Nixon Peabody attorneys has authored Pan-African Infrastructure Development and Public-Private Partnerships to serve as a practical reference tool for business people, lawyers and academics to understand the public-private partnership (“P3”) model and its applications as it relates to Africa.
Africa’s rapid urbanization and growing middle class generates hundreds of millions of consumers and therefore a greater demand for infrastructure development. This creates new opportunity for Africa as the world’s latest frontier for economic growth. This book is one of the first comprehensive examinations of P3s as a financing tool to address the infrastructure gap and as a key component to address Africa’s infrastructure challenges—inadequate transportation, communications, water and power.
Vincent J. Napoleon, a partner with the firm, served as lead author for this book. Nixon Peabody associate Keri McWilliams and department attorney Diana Vilmenay-Hammond served as contributing authors.
