USAID Blog Discusses ‘Pay For Results’ Models In Global Development

USAID’s “IMPACTblog”: Ensuring Effective Development
Seema Patel, division chief of the innovation design and advisory team, and Anne Healy, division chief for the source and test team, both in the U.S. Global Development Lab, discuss the role of “pay for results” models in development, writing, “‘Pay for results’ is an umbrella term for initiatives that pay out only after specified results have been achieved, rather than paying for the efforts to work toward those results. It is seen as a disruptor that encourages innovation and attracts new funding sources. … By integrating these practices into our everyday work, we have the potential to cut costs, make smart decisions, and transform international development” (10/30).
