Employing a difference-indifferences estimator and a two-part model, we find that health equity funds and vouchers h...

With such farming being historically dependent on rainfall, the majority of lowland farmers grow just one c...

Policy Coherence for Development (PCD) is about making sure that policies for sector development do not contradict or undermine one another and that as far as possible, policies are complementary and create synergy.
