Mapping of compilations of evidence
This assignment mapped compilations of evidence within the 14 thematic areas that the Unit for Policy Support is responsible for, which were captured in 14 thematic briefs and an overview report that analysed trends in evidence. These briefs sought to ensure that Program Officers, Senior Policy Specialists, and Lead Policy Specialists have a better understanding of and access to evidence within their respective areas for analysis and decision making, and support Sida in its goal of becoming a more evidence-based organisation. Under goal 5 in the Operational Plan (2020-23), Sida shall to a greater extent build decisions and solutions on evidence, support other organisations who are building evidence and effectively use systems for collecting and making evidence accessible. Briefs were developed in close collaboration with the relevant Programme Officer, in the areas of Agriculture & Food Security; Anti-Corruption; Democracy & Human Rights; Education; Employment; Energy; Environment & Climate Change; Freedom of expression/Information and Communications Technology (ICT); Gender Equality; Health and Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR); Migration; Peace and Security; Trade; and Social Protection.
