(IIHS), a national education institution, has announced a short course on 'PPP in Urban Services - Lessons for Future Action'. The course will be held at the IIHS City Campus, Bangalore from March 6th - 9th. The course aims to help participants understand the way forward in improving urban service delivery through a PPP approach. The course is jointly offered by IIHS and iDeCK.
This course will start with a quick overview of the PPP framework(s) and move on to take a critical look at case studies of Urban sector PPPs in India (and other developing countries) in an attempt to draw insights for future action in PPPs in the Urban sector. The course with focussed components on Urban Water, Urban SWM, Urban Transport and Urban Amenities like Markets, etc. along with a critical overview of services as they are structured currently, the roles of different participants, the key challenges, sector regulation status, key players, etc. will provide a comprehensive understanding of the present setting. From this, participants will be assisted to draw conclusions on what PPP models may apply to this sector.
Subsequently, the course will move on to look at case studies to understand what has been tried out and whether it has succeeded or failed and why; to help participants draw some lessons for what might work for the future. After all the sectors are covered, the course will attempt to round off the discussion on Urban PPPs by discussing sustainability issues (both environmental and social), new integrated and decentralised approaches, and what this would imply for policy, regulation and sector structure.
