São Paulo Metropolitan Waterway Ring PPP Project
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
The Motivation
Final Consideration
The Project
Despite of the Public party lack of funds, the magnitude of this project demands the expertise and efficiency of the Private sector. By contracting a PPP, the Public party would delegate the construction, operation, maintenance and rehabilitation of the whole Waterway Ring inffluence area, in which new business could be developed.
This PPP project could be a sponsored concession - the returns for the Private party come from user fees (e.g. canal usage) and Government transfers.
Why should it be a PPP?
Remembering the Golden Rule for risk management:
How should the risks be allocated?
Final Project by Tadeu Lima
June, 2015
A 170km of navigable urban canals network, composed by the Tietê and the
Pinheiros Rivers, the Billings and the Taiaçupeba Reservoirs and an artificial canal connecting them both.
"The rivers within the biggest city in Brazil are more than an open sewer: they can revolucionize the traffic, waste collection and the city's quality of life"
Heavy traffic and pollution. These words reffer to a recurring problem to the inhabitants of the metropolitan area of São Paulo. They struggle everyday with the lack of a decent public transportation system, in addition to living with heavy air and water pollution.
Apart from those problems, the Tietê and the Pinheiros rivers are also famous for another environmental problem: the inundations caused by floods.
20 Locks

3 tri-ports
14 trans-ports
60 eco-ports
36 dredging-ports
4 mud-ports
24 passengers ports
Win-win Situation
Private Party
Public Party
Economic, social, urban and enviromental benefits;
Increase of public spaces;
Increase of urban mobility;
Better waste management.
Many different business opportunities;
Good reputation;
"the risk in the project should be transferred to the party that is able to control and manage them at the lowest costs"
Although having a solid framework such as the Brazilian National PPP Law (Lei 11079/2004) helps in many aspects, including in risks allocation, contracting a PPP demands a much more precise work and a more elaborated risk matrix design.

inland navigation: the origin and destiny ports are placed within the urbanized area
