Knowledge Seminar on Results-Based Financing and Output-Based Aid "Bringing Development to Communities to Improve Lives and Achieve Measurable Results: Examples from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Kenya"
October 19, 2016Tokyo


With mounting concerns over the effectiveness of aid, and growing political commitment to increase aid to developing countries, it is critical that the disbursement of funds is linked to the actual delivery of services, or outputs. One way to do this is through Output-Based Aid (OBA), which is a strategy for using explicit performance based funding to deliver basic service - such as water, sanitation, electricity, transport, telecommunications, education, and health care - where policy concerns would justify public funding to complement or replace user fees. Historically, in both industrial and developing countries, infrastructure service delivery has often involved implicit rather than explicit funding. These implicit funding approaches are poorly targeted and often inefficient.

On the occasion of the visit of Ms. Carmen Nonay, Practice Manager, Partnerships and Resource Mobilization Unit of the Social, Urban, Rural and Resilience Global Practice and Ms. Catherine O’Farrell, Lead Infrastructure Specialist and Head of GPOBA, TDLC is pleased to host a Knowledge Seminar on Results-Based Financing and Output-Based Aid: Bringing Development to Communities to Improve Lives and Achieve Measurable Results: Examples from Indonesia, Bangladesh and Kenya. Clients from Indonesia, Bangladesh and Kenya will be connected via VC.

The Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) is a global partnership program within World Bank Group (http://www.gpoba.org/). Through a diverse portfolio of projects, GPOBA funds, designs, demonstrates and documents output-based aid approaches (OBA) to improve the delivery of basic services in developing countries. Large development projects too often fail to include the very poor, and GPOBA is dedicated to making sure the poor and marginalized have access to energy, water, health, sanitation, solid waste management, education and telecommunications and other basic services necessary for growth and opportunity.
