Abstract: A financial/economic crisis may have an adverse effect on transport public-private partnerships (PPPs) as both traffic demand is negatively influenced, and governments are further under pressure. However, research on awarded road PPP contracts over a 20-year period in the European Union (EU) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) showed that the market slowdown is brief and followed by a re-bounce leading to an overall upward trend. The LAC region has experienced multiple financial setbacks with no significant change in the PPP market structure as opposed to the EU, where significant changes were observed concerning a shift in the remuneration schemes employed.
