Why you should buy this book:

Intended to shed light, to the uninitiated, on the complex topic of infrastructure financing. This text offers readers the basic principles of project finance and public-private partnership transactions in a simple, clear yet comprehensive context. It takes the reader through the funding process from project concept, via choice of funding mechanism, to Financial Close and implementation.

Above all, this book attempts to apply common sense to what can be complex scenarios. Unfortunately, historical practice has not always applied that virtue.
