Risks and Limitations

What are the key risks, constraints and dependencies related to the project?

The risk is the insecurity or the pandemic crisis in COVID-19. The strategies are to wait for the provincial government to restore peace in case it happens. The respect of the barrier measures and instructions of the government for the fight against the propagation of the disease.

Risk mitigation and continuity

No risk incurred in case of change of authorities because the law on the public private partnership in force in our country recognizes the partnership engages the institution not an individual.
