Try to imagine a well-functioning economy without having secure land tenure and property rights established. Would investors and service providers enter such a risky environment? Would banks be wary of offering and lending? Could conventional commerce or business transactions even operate optimally?
This illustrates the key features of GPRBA's role in the West Bank & Gaza Real Estate Registration Project, the first test case in applying results-based financing in the land sector.
Access to clean water remains a struggle for many of the poorest households in rural areas. GPRBA collaborated with the World Bank in Tanzania to bring safe, clean water to 165 villages in the country by combining blended financing with emerging technologies including solar water pumps, pre-paid meters, chlorination and remote sensors.
Dar es Salaam, September 24, 2019. About 165 rural Tanzanian villages in nine regions* will have access to a sustainable water supply through improved solar pumping systems.
GPRBA is supporting its first irrigation project, designed to help small-scale farmers stabilize production and to stave off the challenges of drought and excessive rainfall due to climate change.
