We fund studies under a specific theme or which address a particular question or set of questions in programme areas where our donors want to expand global public knowledge of what works and what does not. These studies include process and formative evaluations, impact evaluations, systematic reviews and evidence gap maps. We also provide funding and technical support for evaluating interventions in some countries and regions identified by our members.
