Short Outline
In developing countries governments are not capable of providing elementary needs like water, sanitation, infrastructure and energy because of a lack of money. They therefore need organizations that are willing to collaborate. It is also necessary to let the local population participate to achieve an optimal result. Participation of private investors alone is not enough; take for example the top areas in India in contrast with the slums.
The concept of public private partnership is now a step ahead with the involvement of people. People’s involvement in development of countries struggling to rise high in the Global Arena has been playing a vital role.
Today government of a developing country realizes that their limited financial resources are not sufficient to cover the needed expansion of the services like water, sanitation, energy and other urban infrastructures
It is becoming increasingly clear that governments cannot meet the continually growing demand for water, waste, energy and other urban services acting alone. Local governments are finding that their tax revenues are not providing sufficient resources to meet these needs, and official development assistance has not been able to fill the gap. It is in this backdrop that we are forced to think of alternate sources of finance, technical excellence and support.

One of the most viable options is to involve (PPP) describes a spectrum of possible relationships between public and private actors for the cooperative provision of infrastructure services. Adding to the same if the common man of the society gets involved the (PPPP), the co-operation of public and private organizations along with the people’s participation leads to a stable self developed authority for its own development though Public Private Partnership.

In cities throughout the world, private firms have demonstrated their ability to improve the operation of infrastructure services. However, it is important to bear in mind that private involvement does not provide an automatic solution to urban infrastructure problems unless and until the society acts at a major player.

The key factors that could be highlighted are government commitment, legal and regulatory capacity, stakeholder involvement, intelligent transaction design, cost-recovery tariffs, the right option and a systematic approach and generation of ways to convince and attract people towards the whole concept of development.

The steps involved would be structuring the project for private participation, setting the necessary changes/ framework for the project, defining the terms of bidding (Bid design) and preparation of documents.

Examples: A developing country like India puts forth successful as well as unsuccessful examples of Public Private People Partnership (PPPP). Mumbai the economic capital of India gives examples of exchanging slums with high-rise buildings with the consent of slum dwellers wherein the slum dwellers will be allotted with a ‘pucca’ house for themselves.
On the contrary the same could not be taken up successfully in few other cities.
