Description and results


The Asia Pacific Project Preparation Facility (AP3F) is a USD 73 million multi-donor facility, managed by the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Office of Public-Private Partnerships (OPPP), designed to build the capacities of developing countries in Asia to create public-private partnerships for infrastructure. The AP3F prioritizes technical assistance requests that contribute to climate resilience, sustainable development and regional economic integration, which enhances enabling reforms and government capacity development. The facility is co-financed by ADB (USD 10 million), Australia (AUD 10 million) and Japan (USD 40 million). Project activities include: (1) providing technical assistance to any ADB developing member country government to support the financial, legal, and technical advisory services required to prepare and structure public-private partnership (PPP) transactions. This include project scoping, feasibility, preparation, structuring and tendering; and (2) supporting legal and regulatory reforms that facilitate private sector investments in infrastructure projects.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved policy, legislative, regulatory and institutional practices for public-private partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects by governments in the Asia Pacific region; and (2) increased delivery of infrastructure investment opportunities to prospective investors in the Asia Pacific region.

Results achieved

Results as of March 2023 include: (1) approved 70 technical assistances and brought eight supported Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects to market (reached commercial close and financial close); (2) provided policy, legislative, regulatory and institutional practices advice to 23 developing member countries (DMCs), and capacity development support to 15 DMCs, including nine PPP units/agencies; (3) catalyzed US$1.37 billion (C$1.84bn) of commercial investment into priority PPP infrastructure projects, of which US$41.2 million (C$5.48M) are climate finance.
