About GPOBA's Showcase
Results-based financing (RBF) has been successful in ensuring accountability in the delivery of water and sanitation basic services. Three illustrative examples come from Indonesia, Senegal and Sri Lanka. In Indonesia, RBF enabled the central government to improve the accountability at the local level after a devolution, financing new basic infrastructure projects including water and sanitation, drainage and irrigation. Technical assistance supported the capacity of the national auditing agency to perform physical verification of infrastructure prior to the disbursement of public funds. To share experience and learn from other countries about intergovernmental transfers for basic infrastructure, a South-South Knowledge Exchange was held in May 2017, bringing together officials from India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and Indonesia. A rich body of multimedia-based knowledge products will be available to complement the presentation and engaging discussions. In Senegal, an on-site sanitation project helped poor people access sanitation facilities in peri-urban areas of Dakar, improving the environment, community health, and the well-being of women and children. In Sri Lanka, an RBF project provides new connections to the sewer, decentralized wastewater treatment and improved on-site sanitation, servicing low-income households in the outskirts of Colombo.
