This CEDIL Synthesis Working Paper is a report on the first of its kind country evaluation map for a single country. The map identifies 617 evaluations in multiple sectors in Uganda. Nearly 60 per cent of the studies contain process evaluation evidence and over 40 per cent are impact evaluations.

This country evaluation map seeks to make recent development evaluations from Uganda visible and available in a single repository. It identifies potential gaps in knowledge and opportunities for synthesising existing evidence for the use of policymakers and researchers in Uganda. Users can submit studies for inclusion in the map, thus giving the map a repository function.

The map has been co-produced by the Campbell Collaboration with the Office of the Prime Minister, Uganda, the Africa Centre for Systematic Reviews and Knowledge Translation and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation. The Office of the Prime Minister in Uganda has been using the map as part of its planning process and for informing an evaluation agenda for the health sector.
