Evidence framework

The evidence framework organises robust research on results in PSD based on the logic by which programmes typically expect to achieve pro-poor impacts: it is designed as a ‘clickable’ results chain that signposts key evidence for each step in the logic. As such, it helps in making research-backed arguments for PSD, while highlighting remaining research gaps. Suggested additions to the framework are always welcome. Please e-mail the DCED Secretariat.

To view the available evidence for each link in the chain, click on the blue arrows in the results chain below or on the respective items in the menu on the right. Please note that the graphic is not available for Mobile Phone displays, however you can explore the respective links on the right hand menu.

To view narratives explaining how the different types of interventions are typically expected to lead to pro-poor outcomes, you can click on the yellow boxes at the bottom of the framework.

Evidence on specific intervention types at a glance: Syntheses of research listed across the evidence framework

Work is on-going to to bring together evidence on specific sub-types of interventions listed across the framework into easily accessible summary documents. Available syntheses by the DCED and others are listed below.
