Thesis Summary

The impact of financial and ownership structures in the performance of public-private partnerships: The case of member countries of the West African Monetary Union (UEMOA).

Following an instruction of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA), the West African Development Bank (BOAD) and the WAEMU Commission, conducted steps to "implement structuring reforms aimed at improving the financing of the Union's economies through Public-Private Partnerships (PPP)". This political will is at the origin of the initiation of a regional initiative for the development of PPPs. In line with the above, this study aims to evaluate the relationship between the performance of projects carried out in PPP or in progress within WAEMU and the financial structure or ownership structure, in order to feed into the reflections intended for the progressive construction of the aforementioned regional initiative. As a result, the overall performance of PPPs is independent of the financial structure or the ownership structure. The major lesson of this analysis is the demonstration of endogenous and exogenous factors that explain performance. It is therefore a question of deepening the analysis of these factors and to question their taking into account in the construction of an environment conducive to the growth of PPPs.
