Our briefs summarise evidence from 3ie-supported impact evaluations, systematic reviews, replications and evidence gap maps. They also include summaries of our research programmes, lessons from grant making and instances of uptake and use of evidence.

Evidence gap map

These briefs summarise the findings from evidence gap maps, which map the systematic reviews and impact evaluations in a sector or sub-sector.


Evidence use

These briefs highlight instances of evidence use from 3ie-supported studies. The link between evidence and its use is often not immediate or directly attributable. Through various sources like grant documents and in-depth interviews with key stakeholders, these briefs investigate how context, actors and other mechanisms contribute to uptake and use of evidence.


Impact evaluation

These briefs summarise the main findings, lessons and recommendations from 3ie funded impact evaluations published in our impact evaluation report series.


Learning summary

These briefs summarise major lessons 3ie has observed in the implementation of 3ie-funded studies. They can cover a range of issues, such as study design, methodology, implementation and engagement. Where 3ie funds a portfolio of evaluations in a sector, learning may be based on what 3ie is finding across a number of studies.


Systematic review

These briefs summarise 3ie-funded systematic reviews and provide main findings and implications for policy, programming and further research.


Working paper

These briefs summarise findings or provide highlights of 3ie working papers – a series that focusses on current debates in evidence generation and use. Policy-relevant papers in the working paper series also synthesise findings of mixed-method impact evaluations and systematic reviews to offer new analyses and recommendations.
