Public-private Partnership
A public–private partnership (PPP, 3P or P3) is a cooperative arrangement between two or more public and private sectors, typically of a long-term nature.[1][2] Governments have used such a mix of public and private endeavors throughout history.[3][4] However, the late 20th century and early 21st century[when?] have seen a clear trend towards governments across the globe making greater use of various PPP arrangements.[1][2] There is no consensus about how to define a PPP.[5] PPPs can be understood of both as a governance mechanism and a language game.[1] When understood as a language game, or brand, the PPP phrase can cover hundreds of different types of long term contracts with a wide range of risk allocations, funding arrangements and transparency requirements
