This video presents three basic elements that distinguish results-based financing from traditional development funding:
In Kenya, rapid urbanization has huge implications for water use and wastewater management in the country’s cities, which are already facing increasing water and sanitation demands, such as pollution and overexploitation. GPRBA's water and sanitation project in Nairobi provided about 85,000 people in the city's informal settlements with access to water service and connections to the sewerage network.
From 2010 to 2013, the GPOBA: Vietnam Education Project provided tuition subsidies to more than 8,000 poor students to attend non-public upper secondary schools and professional secondary schools. Using an output-based aid approach, the project linked the payment of a tuition subsidy with student performance.
The Government of Uganda recently decentralized rural water supplies, awarding contracts to private operators. But a critical lack of local finance existed, and local operators needed capacity-building. The Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches (GPRBA), IFC, PPIAF and DevCo partnered with the private sector to help find local solutions to water problems in rural Uganda, bringing together local financial institutions and small-scale water providers.
About 100 participants discussed their views and practices on result-based financing at the RBF Forum 2019, held May 15-17, 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This brief video features select participants from some organizations and their key takeaways from the three-day event.
