Resilience, recovery, and renegotiation: New insights into outcome-based partnerships in the wake of COVID-19
The global crisis sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic has provided new insight into the functionality and resilience of outcome-based financing (OBF) programs in the face of unforeseen circumstances, according to experts at the sixth session of the U.K.’s Government Outcomes Lab (GOLab) “
GPRBA participated in the sixth session of the U.K.'s Government Outcomes Lab "Engaging with Evidence" series to discuss the role of outcomes-based financing and impact bonds in building resilient services during the COVID-19 pandemic and in the recovery process.
About 330 participants joined a three-day international webinar (half-day each) on performance measurement and intergovernmental fiscal transfer on February 22-24, 2021.
This case study is part of a series prepared by the World Bank’s Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches (GPRBA). The objective is 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.
