Lessons from Timor-Leste's Boss project and how to make thin market systems work better for the poor.

The case study is set out in three parts, looking at:

  • the diagnostic process that led the BOSS project to focus on influential systems like input supply and knowledge
  • the journey to arrive at right-sized measurement methods that could capture the real-time changes resulting from interventions
  • the challenges of stimulating systemic change - sustainable and resilient impact at scale - in a post-conflict, small-island context
