Uppdaterad: 29 september 2015

När: Torsdagen den 8 oktober
Tid: 9.00-12.30
Plats: Hörsalen, SIDA, Valhallavägen 199 Stockholm

What happens when a donor pays after a certain result is achieved instead of paying upfront for certain activities? Does it lead to more ownership, flexibility, enhanced entrepreneurship and efficiency? Or does it mean that only interventions with measurable results will be implemented?


9.00 – 12.30 8th October 2015, please see the agenda below.

New approaches to development cooperation are growing in use, but many challenges remain to be addressed. The purpose of this seminar is to inform about recent developments within Results Based Financing Approaches (RBFA) and to exchange ideas and experiences. The seminar will assemble international expertise to introduce the methodology, discuss design-questions and give the latest update on lessons learnt from current interventions.

Among the speakers we are proud to introduce Dr William Savedoff from Center for Global Development, one of the leading experts on the theoretical framework of RBFA. We will also listen to representatives from the organisation Cordaid, who works with the civil society in fragile states such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic. Sida’s head of Communications, Mr Joachim Beijmo, will facilitate the discussion. Please see the agenda below.


Afternoon workshop: During the afternoon, 13.30 – 15.30, you are welcome to join a workshop where representatives from donors, NGOs, think-tanks and others with a particular interest in RBFA methodology will discuss key issues of specific interest. If you want to participate in this workshop, please contact The places are limited.
