“The Concordia Partnership Index aims to bridge information gaps in order to make it easier for entities to identify opportunities for partnership. The Index ranks countries based on their readiness and their need to engage in P3s. The Index measures readiness by assessing countries’ political and market structures and measures need by assessing their infrastructure deficits. The inclusion of a need assessment differentiates Concordia’s Index from other indices that measure P3 environments. While the success of a P3 depends on a country’s political and market structures, the Index recognizes that for a P3 to be truly impactful it must address a large-scale need.
The Index’s in-depth examination of countries’ readiness and need for P3s is a valuable tool for the public, private, and non-profit sectors. By examining the individual indicators that make up a composite score, stakeholders can better understand whether P3 engagement would be beneficial, and if so, in which sectors.”
