About the Evidence Map

How well do market systems approaches work?

The BEAM evidence map is intended to support decision-makers and practitioners answer this question, guide the effective allocation of funds, and encourage future research.


We have visualised our database of evidence resources as an easily accessble map to facilitate informed judgement and evidence-based decision-making. Use the map to:

  • Find material to support an argument for the use of market systems approaches.
  • Find examples and cases of successful programmes that can be used as inspiration or guidance to develop new market systems programmes.

Inclusion criteria

The evidence map presents publications that contain credible results from market systems interventions, categorised by intervention type. Evidence is defined broadly as: results associated with a market systems programme that are collected by projects, donors or other researchers.

For a resource to be classified as 'evidence' and included on the evidence map, it needs to fulfil our inclusion criteria.

Updating the evidence 

We regularly update the resources on the map. If you have evidence to share, please email evidence@beamexchange.org.
