"Innovative, Results-Based Financing for Solid Waste Management"
In this webinar, the presenter will discuss results-based financing (RBF) mechanisms in the solid waste sector and the role of output-based incentives can play in improving services and outcomes. The presentation will draw on a recently launched report “Results-Based Financing for Municipal Solid Waste,” with case studies representing unique solid waste sector challenges and providing local and contextually relevant RBF project design. The report was sponsored by GPOBA and prepared by the urban unit of the World Bank Group’s Social, Urban, Rural and Resilience Global Practice.
