Organised jointly with German Development Institute (DIE) on 19-20 May 2014, the workshop provided an opportunity for development practitioners and experts to discuss results-based funding mechanisms, focusing on experiences and early lessons in design and implementation.
Experts and representatives from bilateral and multilateral institutions, foundations and partner countries explored key issues when designing and implementing these new financing modalities. Participants were invited to discuss their experience in sectors such as health, education, environment or governance. Plenary sessions as well as sessions with break-out groups were organised to facilitate practical exchanges.
