Public Database of Evidence

What is the Public Database of Evidence?

Between July and September 2020, Delta 8.7 will assemble a public database of evidence on what works to achieve SDG 8.7. This will be assembled through submissions from the public using a Submission Form found here and through a parallel literature review carried out by an independently commissioned consultant – the University of Nottingham Rights Lab.

The database will be ‘published’ at several points during the submission period, to allow submitters to review whether certain sources have already been submitted, and thereby focus their time on adding new sources of evidence to the database.


Detailed below are the documents that have been submitted to the database so far:
