Mapping Evidence Syntheses in the Humanitarian Sector: Insights and challenges

This technical briefing provides a catalogue of existing systematic and literature reviews of humanitarian evidence syntheses. The exercise looked at syntheses conducted from 2009 onwards, and includes those which are still in progress. There were three main aims: to identify gaps in the humanitarian evidence base; to improve general knowledge and learning in the field by ensuring that staff and programmes are informed of existing syntheses; and to prevent future duplication of synthesis efforts.
