Results-based approaches are receiving increasing interest from client countries and donors, but their deployment in the energy sector has been limited compared to other sectors. ESMAP has embarked on a work program that aims to assess how results-based approaches can be used to improve outcomes and scale up financing for energy sector development.
As part of this work program, ESMAP hosted a conference on May 7, 2012 to share lessons from the use of results-based approaches in other sectors such as water and sanitation, health, roads, and information and communication technology (ICT). The session focused on policy and program innovations, and common challenges and factors for success associated with these programs. A closing panel of energy practitioners reflected on the reasons behind the slow adoption of these approaches in the energy sector, focusing on key challenges and opportunities in the move towards testing out, and subsequently scaling up, results-based approaches.
