The World Bank Group is currently assisting governments in several countries, including Brazil, to develop and bring to market public-private partnerships (PPPs) in infrastructure sectors, including a priority of public street lighting (PSL). The advancement of technologies such as LED luminaires are being used on a large scale in several cities around the world, and allow great energy savings, improved performance and durability, with reduced maintenance costs. The sector has stood out as one of the most attractive for the implementation of PPP projects.

This Practical Guide for Structuring Public Lighting PPP Projects (Guide) aims to disseminate the lessons learned in the structuring achieved during the first phase of the Program, in addition to international experiences, to support the structuring of IP PPP projects in the Brazil. The Guide presents in a clear and didactic way the step-by-step process for structuring PPP projects for the modernization of the Public Lighting sector in order to disseminate knowledge, sharing good practices in the sector and thus allowing the implementation of partnership projects in a sustainable. It is a detailed script to guide public managers and their teams, as well as private agents involved in project structuring, in the search for quality projects. These are valuable actions that should help improve PPP projects and promote adequate structures that contribute to the efficient allocation of resources.

The Public Street Lighting PPP Program, the FEP and the Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF), a global collaboration platform initiated by the World Bank and the G20 that integrates efforts to drive private investment in sustainable, quality infrastructure projects in developing countries and emerging markets, have joined forces to support the development of a standardized and replicable Program aligned with the Federal Government objectives.
