Overview

The Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches (GPRBA), formerly known as the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) until February 2019, provides innovative financing solutions that link funding to achieved results. GPRBA’s results-based financing (RBF) approaches provide access to basic services like water and sanitation, energy, health and education for low-income families and communities that might otherwise go unserved. By bringing together public and private sector funders to maximize resources and designing effective incentives for service providers to reach underserved low-income communities, GPRBA gives people the chance for a better life.

Established in 2003 and housed within the Urban, Disaster Risk Management, Resilience & Land (GPURL) Global Practice at the World Bank, GPRBA amplifies URL goals to help countries build sustainable, inclusive, resilient, and productive communities. With its mandate to explore and apply innovative results-based financing solutions for enabling access to basic services, GPRBA is positioned at the forefront of the World Bank’s efforts to end extreme poverty and boost prosperity among the poorest 40 percent in low- and middle-income countries. GPRBA supports RBF approaches in a variety of sectors in 30 countries.
