Evidence maps

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.
