Water and Sanitation
Globally, around 663 million people lack access to safe drinking water and 2.4 billion lack access to improved sanitation, such as a toilet or latrine. Ensuring access to water and sanitation for all by 2030 is one of the top priorities of the Sustainable Development Goals. GPRBA has been making a concerted effort since 2005 to test OBA approaches, a type of RBF instrument, in the sector to service delivery for low-income communities through subsidies linked to actual results achieved. OBA specifically targets poor populations, it helps to ensure that the benefits of infrastructure investment reach those most in need. GPRBA has supported 15 subsidy funding projects in the water and sanitation sector.
