DRAFT: USAID Evidence Framework
USAID's Program Cycle Policy, USAID’s policy on Development Data, USAID’s Scientific Research Policy and other guidance define evidence for USAID and clarify standards for research, evaluation, and data management and use. This evidence framework brings information from those sources to articulate USAID’s approach to building and using evidence for programmatic and strategic decision-making
This draft is based on a review of common evidence frameworks published by other agencies and it is based on USAID’s existing policies and guidance. It is shared with the purpose of engaging internal and external stakeholders in discussion.
Your comments and questions on this draft evidence framework are welcome, and will help USAID to clarify and finalize a final version in the coming months. Please share your feedback here.
