Boosting Investments in Nigerian PPPs through Better Mitigation of Project Risks

George Nwangwu


Keywords: PPP, Nigeria, Risk Mitigation

Nigeria currently has a number of seemingly commercially viable PPP projects which have not attracted financing from private sector investors, despite the best efforts of the government at marketing these projects. The apathy from investors is due to the manner in which the project risks have been managed. Prospective investors have simply not been comfortable with the risk allocation framework underpinning these projects as there has been no conscious effort to incentivise investors through the proper allocation and mitigation of risks. The paper looks at the correlation between investments and the proper management of project risks and suggests ways in which investments in PPP projects within Nigeria may be catalyzed.
