Quality assured research synthesis documents from a selected set of publishers who focus is on supporting evidence-informed decision-making on issues relevant to international development
The Eldis "Evidence for policy and practice" Resource Guide is different from our more standard thematic Guides in that it draws from a specific, editorially selected, set of research organisations. 

These organisations have been selected because they have a specific focus on providing high quality evidence to support decision-making in international development and apply robust methodological approaches to selecting and synthesising that evidence. 

They include organisations that focus on impact evaluation, those that provide knowledge services to governments and international donors and those that routinely produce or commission systematic reviews on topics relevant to international development.

We are continuously identifying and assessing new organisations to add to this list so if you think your organisation is producing content relevant to this guide please don't hesitate to contact us.
