Project finance (PF) is a relatively new concept in developing countries as opposed to developed countries. PF has been used in development of Infrastructure in Energy sector (oil and gas, mining, electricity generation), water sector, telecommunication, roads and highway, railway, Irrigation and public services. Different scholars and experts have worked on development on infrastructure projects in different sectors using PF concept, even though the PF concept has been used few studies have been done on Irrigation sector. The purpose of this paper is to analyze Influence of environmental factors on financing of irrigation projects; by critically looking at its use in other sectors in comparison to irrigation sector. In examining these aspects, an attempt is made to achieve four main objectives: to determine Key Commercial Risks involved, analyze Main contractual forms of PPPs in Irrigation, to determine Key Legal issues involved and to generate proposition for future empirical studies.
