 Image Urban Road Networks: Benefits of a Public-Private Partnership Approach
Following publication of the IRF paper Public-Private Partnerships - Beyond the Financing Aspects in 2008, the IRF working group on PPP addressed the issue of partnerships for Urban Roads. The working group members identified a number of modern case studies that naturally fit into IRF's definition of PPPs, and also highlight the specifics of urban PPPs in today’s context; as well as their interaction with broader transportation issues as with social, economic, environmental and political parameters. These case studies are briefly presented, classified and discussed in this paper.

 Image Partenariats public-privé - Au-delà des aspects financiers
Le débat sur les partenariats public-privé (PPP) a tendance à être dominé par des arguments juridiques et financiers. L'IRF représente dans ce débat la voix de l'industrie routière. Ce document préconise l'utilisation de PPP tels que les contrats à long terme basés sur la performance, en montrant les avantages de ces types de dispositions contractuelles d'un point de vue économique. Ce faisant, l'IRF souhaiterait convaincre les gouvernements, qu’ils soient nationaux, régionaux ou locaux, des avantages que les PPP peuvent apporter aux usagers de la route.
