Evidence maps

This study uses an intensive search strategy across multiple databases to systematically examine and illustrate as an Evidence Gap Map the existing stock of evidence related to the forest conservation sector in LMICs. 

This Evidence Gap Map has been produced by the International Labour Organization (ILO). The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) has shared the technology to produce the graphic. It is a one time use under the terms of the collaboration. All rights reserved.

The purpose of this evidence gap map (EGM) is to provide easy access to the best available evidence on what works to improve education outcomes for primary and secondary school children in in low- and middle-income countries.

The EGM highlights that there are a number of systematic reviews available on school feeding and cash transfers, but few reviews examine the effects of interventions on household expenditure, child labour, teacher performance and attendance. Several reviews report on learning outcomes, but the literature is not comprehensively covered.

The purpose of the Youth and Transferable Skills (YTS) evidence gap map (EGM) is to provide easy access to the best available evidence on the outcomes of transferable skills programming for youth in low- and middle-income countries and to highlight where there are important gaps in this evidence base. Transferable skills, often referred to as soft, non-cognitive or life skills, provide youth with the tools and confidence to succeed in term of employment, health and personal well-being.

The purpose of the Evidence for Peacebuilding (E4P) evidence gap map (EGM) is to provide easy access to the best available evidence on the outcomes of peacebuilding interventions in conflict-affected settings in low- and middle-income countries and to highlight where there are important gaps in this evidence base.

The purpose of this evidence gap map (EGM) is to provide easy access to the best available evidence on the effects of productive social safety net programmes on poverty and related outcomes in low- and middle-income countries, and to highlight important evidence gaps. The EGM identifies several systematic reviews of microfinance, employment assistance and business skills training and a large number of impact evaluations assessing the effects of a variety of productive safety net programmes on measures of income, consumption or savings.

The purpose of this evidence gap map (EGM) is to provide easy access to the best available evidence on the outcomes of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions and to highlight where there are important gaps in the evidence. The EGM identifies a number of systematic reviews assessing the effects of WASH interventions on diarrhoea, but few systematic reviews assess effects on other outcomes such as time use, safety and musculoskeletal injury (particularly for women and girls), and economic outcomes.
