Using technology to improve the cost-efficiency of results verification in Program-for-Results Financing (PforR) projects
A project funded through the Program-for-Result
, the World Bank’s financing instrument which is a form of RBF linking disbursement to specific program results, incorporated mobile data collection
in the verification process. This technology allowed for real time data collection and the capacity to access information and visualize where verification was taking place, and the ability to quickly catch errors before they became systematic.
