A Year in Review: FY2017

GPOBA provides an overview of its operations and activities in its newly released Annual Report for fiscal year 2017, highlighting details on grant agreements, technical assistance, and knowledge dissemination.
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.
