Practicing Results-based Finance on the Ground

In the first webinar on innovative finance series, we discussed what innovative finance means, how it can be deployed effectively, the two objectives of innovative finance – increasing efficiency of existing funds vs leveraging additional funds, and addressed some of the myths and perceptions around it.

In the second session, joined by Gautam Chakraborty of USAID, AVPN member KOIS aims to deep dive into increasing efficiency of existing funds, and explore a subset of the innovative finance toolkit, and results-based finance. The session will look to outline how to design and structure a specific transaction and illustrate its applications through selected case studies in India.

This session covered:

  • What results-based financing is, and how it can be applied in different scenarios
  • The key objectives of results-based financing: increasing accountability, shifting to a focus on outcomes, and improving efficiency
  • The steps involved in structuring and launching a results-based finance instrument: the prerequisites, the program design, and the process of implementation while aligning with local legal systems
  • The evolution of results-based financing in India, through selected case studies
