For their first Engaging with Evidence session of 2022, the Government Outcomes Lab will explore the use of outcomes-based funding within education interventions in India. Drawing on the latest research by Dalberg which investigates the cost-effectiveness of outcomes-based funding within education interventions in India, this webinar will explore the nuances, complexities and realities of measuring cost-effectiveness.

The webinar will examine some of the key takeaways from a recent report by the Quality Education India DIB consortium, and discuss broader lessons around the cost-effectiveness of outcomes-based funding and its impact on accountability. As the Quality Education India Development Impact Bond (QEI DIB), set up in 2018 to support education providers in India, is coming to an end, this report serves to draw broader lessons for outcomes-based financing ecosystem in education in India. Looking into a number of education interventions, the report suggests that outcomes-based funding mechanisms can indeed accelerate learning, which has shown to increase learning by 50% compared to non-results settings for the same interventions.

An excellent group of speakers from the British Asian Trust, The Education Outcomes Fund, The Brookings Institution, Dalberg and Government Outcomes Lab will convene to discuss some of the key recommendations from the report and more generally the role of outcomes-based funding in education, and alternative approaches beyond impact bonds.
