A map of evidence maps relating to sustainable development in low-and middle-income countries


This report presents the findings of a map of evidence maps designed to catalogue maps relating to development interventions in low-and middle-income countries. The authors used a modified version of the 3ie’s evidence gap map methodology to identify, categorise and display evidence maps within a framework of intervention sectors adapted from the World Bank categorisation and outcomes classified according to the Sustainable Development Goals. This report has been produced by CEDIL, supported by UK aid through DFID, with contributions from 3ie.
