The Evidence Gap Map could just as easily be called the “Evidence Map”, meaning that it is a visual representation of existing evidence, using a matrix of USAID’s conceptualization of PSE means and value propositions that both the private sector and development actors offer. We hope that by compiling this evidence in one place with a number of filter and search features, we will help facilitate the use of evidence.

Two years after an earthquake displaced nearly 2.8 million people and shocked Nepal’s economy, the country still has a long way to go in its reconstruction process. At the same time, the country faces an endless loop of out-migration for low-paying and often exploitative work, with little meaningful development in communities of origin.

It includes a review of some of the existing tools used to assess vulnerability to either separation or negative child well-being outcomes with attention to economic security for the purposes of targeting households for program participation and matching them to appropriate interventions. ASPIRES is sharing this report as an information resource with the wider interested community given its relevance to other actors working in this area.

Building resilience and reducing disaster risks in hazard-prone areas are critical—and engaging the local private sector is an integral component of effective, sustainable action.
