Who we are

Instiglio’s mission is to unlock the full impact potential of governments to deliver meaningful outcomes for their citizens. We support our partners to integrate results-based approaches into delivery systems and practices, with the goal of enhancing the effectiveness of public and development finance. Over the last 10 years, we have influenced practices, capabilities, and policy frameworks of governments and aid institutions; delivering over 100 projects in 30 low- and middle-income countries aimed at improving the outcomes of development programs. This work has covered sectors including education, livelihoods, workforce development, health, gender, and climate, shaping the deployment of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Some of our important milestones include advising the design and implementation of the world’s first Outcomes Fund (poverty graduation, Kenya and Uganda); the launch of performance-based contracts with governments in Africa (employability, Morocco); structuring a $60 million results-based transfer system for local school districts (education, Peru), and facilitating MCC’s effective use of RBF through a four-year strategic partnership.
