GPI Research Working Group training session: Evidence synthesis methods


Evidence synthesis methods are a powerful way to systematically identify areas of consensus or disagreement across large samples of literature, providing a robust basis for policy and practice recommendations and future research.

Peatlands present a system where there are many contested issues that could benefit from systematic evidence synthesis approaches. The session will provide an overview of how systematic evidence synthesis methods can be used across a range of evidence types, review questions, and policy needs. You will leave with new skills and guidance you can follow to write your own evidence synthesis.
