Payment by Results (PbR) is a relatively new funding mechanism in international development. This paper provides an introduction for NGOs considering engaging with payment by results contracts.

This guidance provides an overview of what payment by results is; what it aims to achieve; what the evidence base says; what NGOs need to think about when considering engaging with PbR; and what are the system-wide issues that PbR could raise.
