The map organizes the evidence into a matrix structure which is split across three results levels:
Gap maps can help navigate the huge range of information available, understand the quality of evidence and identify potential gaps. The Savings Evidence Map is a valuable resource for key stakeholders. The table below illustrates key ways practitioners, donor, investors, policy makers and researchers could find it useful.
The detailed methodology is documented in the Savings Evidence Map: Part I Synthesis Report.
We welcome contributions to fill the gaps and enrich the body of evidence. If you have evidence to share, please click below:
The Savings Evidence Map was developed by Itad and the SEEP Network as part of the Mastercard Foundation Savings Learning Lab.
The Mastercard Foundation Savings Learning Lab is a six-year initiative implemented by Itad, in partnership with the SEEP Network. The Lab's aim is to support learning among the Foundation’s savings sector portfolio programs through increased alignment and effectiveness of monitoring and evaluation, and through the generation, synthesis, curation and dissemination of knowledge. Itad, as the Learning Partner, works across and with the Foundation's partners, Foundation staff and with the wider Savings Sector to support actionable learning by synthesizing and aggregating learning across the portfolio and sector, conducting complementary research and facilitating learning and knowledge sharing with key audiences.
