Database of Output-Based Aid Education Projects

As part of its analysis of the potential for output-based aid (OBA) in the education sector for the Global Partnership for Output Based Aid, Results for Development Institute developed a database of 20 OBA or “OBA-like” education projects. These projects form the basis of an analysis of the requirements for sustainable OBA projects in education. The projects span a number of geographic regions, notably sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America and Caribbean, as well as a variety of education sub-sectors, including basic primary and secondary education, vocational and/or adult education, among others. Section II provides further detail on the methodology for identifying and profiling the OBA education projects, and Section III explains the scoping criteria used to determine whether a particular project was OBA or contained an “OBA-like” component. Section IV contains the individual profiles for each of the landscaped projects. The project search was conducted in November 2014 – January 2015.
