Evidence synthesis can be a powerful tool for decision-makers in the public sector to inform policy and programme design. However, often evidence synthesis methodologies such as systematic reviews are not well-aligned with decision-makers’ needs and can be perceived as an external input in the policy cycle. In an effort to tailor and adapt evidence synthesis methodologies in the public sector, South Africa’s Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) has developed and produced policy-relevant evidence maps. In this presentation, Carin van Zyl (DPME) and Laurenz Langer (ACE) will outline the development of the methodology for policy-relevant evidence maps as well as the research and decision-making steps embedded in it.
