This case study is part of a series to highlight project components that have enabled GPRBA to successfully deploy results-based finance (RBF) approaches for the provision of basic services to low-income communities, with efficiency, transparency and accountability. This analysis focuses on the Nepal Output-Based Aid Solid Waste Management (SWM) project.
The Partnership broadened its mandate in 2019 to incorporate more flexible financing solutions beyond OBA, to keep up with the changing needs of our clients and to achieve greater impact. The name change to GPRBA marked this expansion.
In addition to showcasing the wide range of activities achieved during fiscal year 2020, this Annual Report sheds light on some of the many ways GPRBA continues to employ innovative results-based financing instruments to strengthen service delivery, incentivize long-term and sustainable change, reach the most vulnerable, and respond to current and future global crises (including the COVID-19 pa

In the initial stages of the pandemic – especially in contexts where the state machinery was caught unawares or lacked capacity, or both, social enterprises (SEs) or socially-driven private enterprises – have been particularly active and have stepped up to provide relief.
City-level Assessment and Draft Service Improvement Plan for Solid Waste Management For Itahari Sub-Metropolitan City
By 2050, it is estimated that nearly half the world’s population will reside in cities. Bulging population in cities coupled with their rising income levels has led to an increase in the amount of waste generated by these urban centers.
In the West Bank and Gaza, decades of conflict had led to underinvestment in solid-waste management. Hebron and Bethlehem, the poorest governorates in the West Bank and home to nearly one million people, generated 20 percent of the area’s total solid waste. In 2009, 500 tons of waste produced daily were disposed of in unsanitary dumps, illegally abandoned, or burned.
The report covers highlights of this fiscal year of 2018 (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018), in which GPOBA commemorates its 15th anniversary, along with a review of the progress towards achieving the partnership's goals of designing and implementing OBA pilot projects, building a Center of Expertise, piloting other results-based approaches, and communicating with the development community.
The project was implemented in five municipalities -- Dhankuta, Ghorahi, Lalitpur, Pokhara, and Tansen -- which met certain operating and maintenance requirements. The project aimed to build upon the municipalities’ existing systems and make them more sustainable, rather than developing new systems.
The report, spanning the fiscal year of 2012 (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012), reviews progress towards achieving the Program’s goals of designing and implementing OBA pilot projects, building a Center of Expertise, piloting other results-based approaches, and communicating with the development community.
