WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

The efficiency of funding in terms of the capability to meet certain policy goals in a cost-effective way is becoming increasingly important. One key strategy for improving the lives of the world’s poorest people is to see how they receive such basic services as education, health care and sanitation. Indeed, delivery of these services directly translates into improved well-being and has been shown to increase individual income. But getting services to the people, particularly to the poor, often is hobbled by corruption and inefficiency. One solution to these problems and others like them lies in improving transparency and accountability in how public funds are allocated and expended as well as the outcomes from these development initiatives

Thus, there is a growing demand worldwide for governments and development agencies to deliver measurable and commensurate results from public expenditure. The quest for results needs little defense; better results are critical for fiscal sustainability, economic growth, human development, and poverty alleviation. The increasing demand for results has propelled wide ranging public sector reforms since the 1990s and many innovative instruments have emerged, among them, results-based management (RBM) is especially relevant to the Result Based Financing (RBF) programmes.

The optimal impact and sustainability of project outcome achieved through RBF projects are a lot more compared to other projects which adopted other approaches. Thus the need for officials from projects which are not RBF based and those from RBF projects to be exposed to RBF methodological approaches to planning and guiding project processes from planning
to project closure. This training will provide participants with skills, techniques and approaches that will enable them effectively manage projects for optimal outcomes.
