If we’re all trying to solve the same problem, it makes sense that we share information. The Promising Practices database collates evaluations of the impact of anti-slavery and counter trafficking programming. They are then categorised by country, type of modern slavery and the success of the outcomes achieved. This information is available publicly through an EndNote file and can be used to identify what works in the fight against modern slavery.
Understanding what information already exists and which programs have already been evaluated is crucial to understanding what works. By compiling these evaluations in one database, academics, practitioners and policy makers can search to identify existing evaluations or read accompanying policy papers to drill into the findings.
Walk Free Foundation conducted a systematic review of existing evaluations and collated these in a database, ‘tagging’ the results by type of slavery, type of intervention and location. A review of these ‘tags’ allows users to see key lessons learnt, gaps in understanding and to identify opportunities for further investigation. The database is current as of December 2015 and is due for an update in 2019.
