PPP & Project Finance


Our extensive Public Private Partnership (PPP) experience includes very high-profile work in Sudan. Wael Abdin, SCLO’s Founder, counselled The World Bank Group in the provision of PPP support to the Republic of Sudan. Mr Abdin was appointed by Castalia Advisors as the Sudanese Legal Expert in the project, providing consultancy services for provision of PPP support for the Republic of Sudan. His role included:

  • Identifying all policies and laws related to PPPs, private investment, foreign investment, and private sector participation in infrastructure in the Republic of Sudan.
  • Recommending institutional enabling environment for PPPs.  
  • Providing a full report summarising the legal, regulatory, and policy environment for private sector participation and PPPs in Sudan. The report provides recommendations for overcoming barriers to private sector participation in infrastructure and to implement PPPs in Sudan, and identifies specific measures to close legal, regulatory, and policy gaps.
  • Developing recommended PPP Policy.
  • Drafting a PPP bill in Sudan and ensuring its compatibility with the Sudanese legal system.

Another high-profile project for SCLO included advising Khartoum State Water Corporation in its Build Operate Transfer (BOT) contract, known as the Almanara Water Project.  SCLO also advised Khartoum New International Airport Unit in its proposed project to build a fuel farm storage facility via the BOT.

Mr Abdin was honoured to author the chapter on Sudan in the Project Finance Guide published by Chambers & Partners.
