Sida, along with other international development agencies, recognises the importance of being evidence- based in its policy and programming in order to ensure that development- and humanitarian interventions have maximum impact. Understanding what works in development programming is a core commitment in Sida’s Operational Plan (2020-23). This series of ‘Evidence mapping briefs’ on different thematic areas is one of a number of initiatives intended to help Sida policy specialists, managers and programme officers become more evidence-based in their work. Sida headquarters and field staff may be engaged in a range of tasks for which evidence is necessary – for example, contributing to the development of a bilateral, regional or thematic strategy, developing a programme, or appraising project proposals. To this end, the brief is developed as a versatile tool which can cater to their various needs.
