Evidence and Gap Map, and Formative Review of ADB Support for Global and Regional Value Chains

Evaluation Document | 04 October 2022

ONGOING EVALUATION. IED will conduct an Evidence and Gap Map (EGM) exercise to establish the range of development knowledge available on interventions that support global and regional value chains (GVCs) and to characterize ADB’s support through its strategies and investments. The EGM will highlight gaps in the evidence base and show where evidence is more abundant. An ADB GVC portfolio overlay will be attempted to identify overlaps in ongoing support when compared to available evidence. The results of the EGM will inform future ADB operations by identifying where evidence and gaps exists, and suggestions for ADB targeting of its investments in support for GVCs. It will also feed-in to IED’s mid-term review of Strategy 2030.
