The Application of Results-Based Financing for Urban Transport

This webinar series introduces innovative financing mechanisms that contribute to development solutions, linking needs, objectives and actual results. This series will focus on Results-based financing (RBF), in particular, which has emerged as an important tool for financing basic services because it changes the focus from inputs – funding given in advance for expected results – to verified outputs. As a center of expertise for RBF, the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) brings together practitioners and development partners to share results, experiences and lessons on RBF.

This webinar will focus on urban transport systems, which are crucial to economic and social development, and are particularly important for connecting poor populations to jobs, education, and health services. As the developing world rapidly urbanizes, there is an opportunity to build safer, cleaner, and more inclusive transport systems. In order to better understand the urban transport landscape and how output-based aid (OBA) might be applied most effectively in the sector, GPOBA undertook an urban transport study. Completed in 2016, the study developed OBA pilot concepts and presented recommendations for the identification and preparation of OBA urban transport projects.
