CARE’s experience with Community Score Cards – What works and why?

This inception report from the Overseas Development Institute sets out a series of research questions for a study investigating CARE's experience with Community Score Cards.

The research aims to analyse the effectiveness of CARE’s community scorecard programmes in different countries, with a focus on understanding the key contextual features of different enabling environments. From this, it will draw out lessons on 1) which contexts may be most conducive for scorecard effectiveness/impact and 2) how programmes can be effectively adapted to differing contexts.
