Evidence from rigorous studies about what works, for whom and why, in particular contexts, is expanding rapidly. But additional work is needed to verify the claims made in these single studies, extract findings, and draw lessons for policy and practice. Systematic reviews help decision makers by providing an assessment of the evidence base, what findings are generalizable, and what findings are context-specific. Join 3ie: International Initiative for Impact Evaluation - of which USAID has been a member since 2010 - for this session that will introduce participants to the systematic evidence process, asking answerable questions for systematic reviews, and interpreting the evidence they provide. It is aimed at decision makers funding and implementing development programmes and research, including, for example, USAID staff, USAID implementing partners, social entrepreneurs, and those working for development philanthropy bodies.
