A webinar was organized on 20 May 2020 on ‘Payment by Results (PbR)’, one of the new instruments used by donors in financing projects implemented under their development cooperation. The Webinar was organised as a part of the course module ‘Finance for Development’. I am very pleased to see active interaction of students of both MICD Cohort 6 and Cohort 7. During normal circumstances, we could have visited and learned more from commercial organizations and INGOs who had obtained donor funding through this modality, but under the current COVID-19 related lockdown, we had this limited opportunity to run the discussion through a webinar. Nevertheless, students found this event quite informative and useful; and there were interesting interactions on the process, interest of donors and critiques of PbR. the presentation is appended for those who may be interested in it.
