This paper argues for integrating PPPs into public investment management processes and strengthening mitigation of fiscal risks to help Caribbean countries address their infrastructure needs. Based on a review of selected infrastructure projects undertaken and findings from a survey on PPP management practices, it provides a comprehensive legal, institutional, and public financial management framework for managing PPPs, with a focus on mitigating and properly reporting fiscal costs and risks. It builds on extensive technical support provided by the IMF on PPPs and various IMF publications on the fiscal management of PPPs.
