Behavior Change

Some of the features of results-based approaches can help Output-Based-Aid (OBA) and Results-Based Financing (RBF) practitioners become more aware of behavior determinants to support behavior change and deliver results more effectively.
GPOBA is a global partnership program in the World Bank Group. 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  electricity, water, sanitation, health care, education and other basic services necessary for growth and opportunity.
