Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A systematic review (SR) synthesizes best available evidence on a specific intervention. A common tool in medicine, the method is now used in social science, championed (with funding) by international agencies like UK-DFID, the World Bank. Four SRs in ICTD topics (mobile money, ICTs in education, ICTs for MSMEs and mobiles in rural livelihoods) will be presented; donors will discuss how SRs are used in funding decisions; a critic will point out methodological limitations.
