Independent evaluation of development impact bonds

Location Multi-country

The Project

We provided inputs to the independent evaluation of the Development Impact Bonds (DIBs Pilot Programme).  The purpose of the evaluation was to generate learning and recommendations on the use of DIBs as an instrument for aid delivery. It examined the experience of the UK Aid DIBs pilot programme and generated learning to inform FCDO’s future policy aiming to make the most effective use of DIBs. The evaluation guided FCDO and pilot project partners evaluate whether the tools they were developing were useful, scalable and replicable.
