Scoping reports

We develop our evidence programmes through an organised scoping process to help ensure they are addressing key policy and programming evidence needs. Our scoping exercises include consultations with decision makers, funders, programme managers and practitioners. This exercise usually results in a clear focus for any impact evaluation funding and an evidence gap map and could include a focus for a systematic review. We publish the results of this initial process as a scoping paper and an evidence gap map report.
