Uganda Grid-Based Output-Based Aid Project
The OBA facility supported provision of over 105,000 grid connections for poor households (525,000 residents) in urban, peri-urban, and rural areas, representing about 10 percent of new connections country-wide from 2013–2016.
The GPOBA grant, which was fully utilized four months before the closing date of June 2017, supported about 40,000 connections.
Service providers reported that the project helped to reduce illegal connections and grow their customer base, which encouraged support within the management of the service providers for the OBA facility and for mainstreaming connection application procedures.
This Lessons Learned discusses project insights gathered at the end of this project.
