Evidence gap map reports

The evidence gap map reports describe their background, methodology and findings.

3ie evidence gap maps (EGMs) are thematic collections of impact evaluations and systematic reviews that measure the effects of international development policies and programmes. The maps present a visual overview of completed and ongoing studies and reviews in a sector or sub-sector in terms of the types of programmes (or interventions) evaluated and the outcomes measured. 

The EGM reports provide the main results and recommendations.  They also include the supporting documentation for how the authors produced them, including the choice of the theme or sector, details about the methods, the coding and, when stakeholders were surveyed, a copy of the survey tool.

For more information about 3ie EGMs and to view them on the 3ie interactive online platform, click here. This platform allows users to explore the evidence included in a particular map, with links to user-friendly summaries of all of the included studies.
