This document introduces the process of developing an Evidence Map and aims to guide prospective users on the methodological requirements associated with the tool. It also hopes to introduce a wider audience to evidence mapping that is interested in developing and learning more about the tool. This guidance note was produced by a team of researchers and decision makers in the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME), together with social scientists at the University of Johannesburg, following a nine-month pilot project of co-producing an evidence map on housing, human settlements and the built environment.
