In February GIZ commissioned the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) and Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA) research group to develop an Evidence Gap Map (EGM) of the effects of food systems interventions on food security and nutrition outcomes. This map can help increase the discoverability of evidence and its use by decision-makers working on policies and programs.
1,838 impact evaluations and 178 systematic reviews were identified for this study. This presentation will discuss the main findings of the 3ie food systems evidence gap map, its potential uses, and the implications of this effort for future policy and research.
