Thousands of impact evaluation reports and systematic reviews on different development programmes are published every year. But this research lies scattered in journals, databases and websites. How can we then quickly consolidate what we know and don’t know on specific development programmes or themes?
In this video, 3ie’s Birte Snilstveit shows how the innovative evidence gap map can address this challenge. 3ie’s evidence gap maps provide a graphical and colourful display of areas with strong, weak or non-existent evidence on the effects of development programmes. Birte shows us how the gap map’s dynamic and interactive web platform can be a valuable tool for researchers, policymakers and programme managers.
3ie’s How-To videos use a simple step-by-step approach for explaining theoretical concepts.
The videos in this series explore various topics related to designing, implementing and using impact evaluations. A short quiz at the end of each lecture will help you assess your understanding of the subject covered in the video.
