Welcome to our latest newsletter highlighting some of our accomplishments from the 2020 calendar year. The past 12 months have been extraordinary in many ways. As the world faced the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has forced us all to change the way we work. GPRBA’s main commitment is to foster greater inclusion of disadvantaged individuals and groups so that no one is left behind, in our effort to help reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
GPRBA embarked on a comprehensive retrospective on how we have addressed development challenges through projects over the past 17 years. Drawing on some of these lessons, and tying them to current day challenges, GPRBA released a White Paper on Social Enterprises, that provides a framework to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We also recently launched a new multi-donor trust fund (MDTF) known as the Outcomes Fund. This MDTF will become part of an "umbrella fund" in line with recent World Bank trust fund reforms. This "umbrella" aims to increase efficiency in trust fund management to enable a more strategic approach for donors and the World Bank to partner and finance priorities promoting effectiveness and collaboration.
Many of our past year's achievements are documented in the resources below and on our website. We recently included a distribution list of GPRBA alumni. If you or anyone you know would like to join this list, please let us know.
As this year draws to a close, we would like to wish you Happy Holidays and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
