PPIAF has provided assistance for the development of ports in developing countries, including specific transaction-focused support. In addition PPIAF provided support for the preparation and dissemination of the Port Reform Toolkit: Effective Support for Policymakers and Practitioners. This Toolkit provides policy makers and practitioners with decision-making support in undertaking sustainable reforms of public institutions that regulate port services in developing countries. In particular the purpose of the Toolkit is to provide public officials with support in:

  • Understanding the needs, challenges, and risks for sector reform and institutional design that are emerging from the changing business environment surrounding port operations
  • Choosing among options for private sector participation and analyzing the implications to redefine interdependent operational, regulatory, and legal relationships between public and private parties
  • Preparing legislation, contracts, and institutions to govern private sector participation
  • Managing the transition to increased private sector involvement
