Four years of BCURE: What have we achieved and learnt? An overview of publications and resources

After four years of implementation across six projects and twelve countries BCURE is coming to an end in November 2017. We’ve looked at some of the impacts in a recent blog on Duncan Green’s FP2P, and you can also find more updates on BCURE in the last Annual Review, published on DFID’s Devtracker. A final independent evaluation report will be published at the end of 2017.

As BCURE is wrapping up we wanted to make sure to post links to all BCURE-funded publications, case studies and tools/resources that are available online:
