This rapid literature review summarizes the existing evidence (mainly programme business cases, annual reviews, logical frameworks, etc.) on selected sector programs run by DFID in priority countries. This report will discuss five key DFID sector programmes that can offer lessons for future potential sector development programmes (e.g. in Pakistan). The programmes discussed here are/were run mainly by DFID in its priority partner countries in the sub-Saharan Africa region: Kenya Market Assistance Programme (MAP), Growth and Employment in States Programme (GEMS), The BEAM Exchange (Building Effective and Accessible Markets), Jobs Compact Ethiopia and Dar es Salaam Urban Jobs Programme. These programmes will be discussed further in detail in section 3).
