During the last 10–15 years, a new type of aid has been tested and discussed intensively: Payment by Results. The basic idea is that the donor transfers – at least part of – the resources after some pre-agreed results have been achieved.

In this webinar we will discuss: What, more specifically, is Payment by Results and in which areas has it been tried? Why have donors decided to use this method? And more importantly: What do we know from research and evaluations on the effectiveness of Payments by Results? Have any unexpected results been detected?
