This document provides guidelines on how to use the GPRBA logo, brand and visual identity which are valuable corporate assets that must be used consistently in the proper forms. We created this guide to make it easy for our partners and key stakeholders to apply our new look. We appreciate your participation in contributing to our standardized visual expression.
The use of results-based financing (RBF) approaches has been growing among the development community. The Global Partnership on Results-based Approaches (GPRBA) has been at the forefront of supporting and using RBF mechanisms since 2003, when the program started promoting output-based aid (OBA) through the Global Partnership on Out-Based Aid (GPOBA).
GPOBA is now GPRBA!
Worldwide, millions of people live without basic services, including reliable electricity, functioning toilets and regular waste removal services. As a result, income inequality persists and progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) stalls.
Given the significant financing gap to meet the needs of developing countries and achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, governments, multilaterals and other development partners are increasingly looking to the private sector to help fill this gap.
The map below demonstrates the climate-smart energy pilots supported by GPRBA, along with the estimated number of beneficiaries.

Results-based financing is a well-established financing modality in the health and education sectors but it is still in an early stage of deployment in the area of climate change.
Some 768 million people worldwide don’t have access to safe, healthy water sources, and 2.4 billion people live without access to safe sanitation, such as an on-site toilet or connection to a sewerage network -- around 900 million must defecate in the open.
“Evidence shows that results-based financing has a significant impact – saving lives and expanding access to quality, essential health services for the poorest women and children in developing countries”. Jim Yong Kim, World Bank Group President
