Where risk is a calculable event concerning probability and consequence, uncertainty is the unclear future state in which there is no possibility of placing a numerical probability or calculating the possible effect on an impactful event occurring. Uncertainties are inevitable in infrastructure PPPs because of the dynamic environment in which PPPs usually are implemented and the complex structure of their arrangements. Moreover, the long-term nature of the contracts increases exposure to uncertainty over the life-cycle of the project...
