Introducing GPRBA

This World Bank-supported and multilateral donor funded unit is now the Global Partnership for Results-based Approaches. After 15 years of development experience using results-based financing, this name change reflects a wider emphasis beyond the original focus on output-based aid.

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). RBF approaches aim to enhance the delivery of services by tying payments or funds to demonstrated and verified results. Focusing on these results creates innovation, transparency and accountability. 

New Approaches for Urban Sanitation in Sri Lanka

Around 95% of Sri Lankans have access to basic sanitation. Yet, the growing urban population and density pose a challenge of ensuring safe sanitation consistently. The Government of Sri Lanka is committed to ensure all people using safely managed sanitation services by 2030. This requires new approaches and smart solutions. In recent years, Sri Lanka’s national utility has demonstrated innovative and low-cost models of safe sanitation, through a pilot project supported by the World Bank under the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA).
