This activity aims to systematize lessons on the application of OBA and RBF, based on GPRBA’s 15 years of experience in addressing the development challenges of low-income communities. 

The GPRBA team prepared and disseminated the following:

• Review of GPRBA’s TA and knowledge portfolio against set criteria

• Case studies reflecting the stories of successful application of the RBF mechanisms in different countries (Bangladesh, Ghana, Nepal, Uganda, and Solomon Islands)

• Notes on GPRBA’s experience with applying the RBF mechanism in the energy, water and sanitation sectors, as well as to address the problems related to the following themes: Fragility-Conflict-Violence (FCV), climate change, and gender issues

• Review IVA reports produced as part of GPRBA projects to identify common issues, challenges and risks of project implementation and make recommendations on how to improve IVA and IVA reports

• Survey to assess the mainstreaming of RBF approaches, as well as the scaling-up of RBF projects’ implementation by different governments, development institutions, and other RBF practicing organizations

• Review of RBF-related literature with an emphasis on approaches outside GPRBA – the database has been uploaded to the GPRBA website
