Background The "Extension of Water and Sanitation Services in Low income areas of Honduras" GPOBA pilot project employs output-based aid to improve access to water and sanitation services for low income households in rural and peri-urban communities. The project is currently under implementation.
OBA Approach GPOBA will fund the development of an OBA scheme aimed at improving access to water and sanitation services to low income households. This project will establish an efficient and transparent mechanism for financing water and sanitation infrastructure subprojects in Honduras by creating a national OBA Facility. Subprojects will target peri-urban and rural poor communities where household incomes average less than $46 per month or US$2 per day.
