Evaluation

CALL FOR EVALUATORS

 

Evaluation is defined as a systematic and discrete process, as objective as possible, to determine the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and/or sustainability of any element of a programme’s performance in relation to their objectives. 

The objective of evaluation is to enable the Secretariat and member States to engage in systematic reflection with a view to increasing the effectiveness of the programmes by altering their content and, if necessary, reviewing their objectives.

Evaluation in UNECE is designed to:

Improve programme performance
Promote organisational learning
Support accountability.

UNECE is a member of the United Nations Evaluation Group and is committed to the guiding principles of the Norms and Standards for Evaluation in the United Nations System

The  2014 General Assembly resolution A/RES/69/237 emphasizes the importance of building capacities for the evaluation of development activities at country level, and allows for interaction and cooperation amongst all the relevant partners, including those of the UN System to coordinate efforts to further strengthen the Member States capacities for evaluation. Through this resolution, member States agree that evaluation is an important component of development processes, and recognize evaluation as a country level tool that can help strengthen and support development results.

UNECE evaluation documents are available below.

 

All UNECE evaluation reports, management responses and progress reports published after 1 October 2014 are posted below.
