Results-Based Aid

Results-based aid focuses on development outcomes rather than inputs, e.g. how much children’s learning has improved rather than how many children go to school. CGD’s Cash on Delivery proposal focuses on results, encourages innovation, and strengthens government accountability to citizens rather than donors. Under COD Aid, donors pay for measurable and verifiable progress on specific outcomes, such as $100 dollars for every child who completes primary school and takes a test. We help technical experts, potential donors, and partner countries design COD Aid pilots and research programs.
