Review of Results-Based Financing (RBF) Schemes in WASH

    RBF is an alternative to conventional funding mechanisms for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene projects. Donors have been trying Results-Based Financing (RBF) in WASH since at least the mid-1990s, but until now there have been no comprehensive evaluations of RBF in WASH. This report summarizes findings from an investigation into whether RBF works in WASH, in what circumstances, how, and why. The study was managed and financed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
