Meta-Analyses

 

Second UNODC Evaluation Meta Analysis 01/2015-12/2016 published

This is the second Meta-Analysis of UNODC evaluation findings, covering over 540 recommendations which were issued by more than 70 independent evaluators between January 2015 and December 2016.

 

Background

As a follow-up to the first meta-analysis of evaluation findings undertaken in 2015 and recommendations derived from evaluation reports between January 2011 and December 2014, this second meta-analysis uses the same methodology and analytical approach, tracking the changes within UNODC as regards evaluation - contributing thereby to UNODC's accountability framework.

Objective of the Meta-Analysis

Undertake on a biennial basis, a meta-analysis of the findings and recommendations of evaluation reports, tracking the changes within UNODC as regards evaluations - contributing thereby to UNODC's accountability framework.

IEU change processes

Throughout the development of the first meta-analysis in 2015, covering evaluation recommendations for 2011-2014 and now subsequently a second one for 2015-2016, IEU has further engaged in change processes. These range from mainstreaming gender and human rights perspectives into the whole evaluation cycle to seeking synergies with other evaluation units in the UN system, in particular through UNEG. For example, this includes building national evaluation capacity to instigate accountability processes within Member States' institutions, in line with the review mechanism of the SDGs.

Results

This second meta-analysis of 41 independent evaluation reports as well as 542 recommendations and 292 lessons learned/best practices from January 2015 to December 2016 showed once again a wide array of relevant topics of major importance for UNODC. When comparing the results of the first meta-analysis in 2015 (covering the findings and recommendations of evaluation report from January 2011 to December 2014) with the current one, the continued focus of recommendations on the project/programme cycle is evident. Recommendations in this second meta-analysis were, however, more specifically targeting cross-cutting topics such as capacity-building, human rights and gender, but less UNODC's overall strategic approach which was the main topic with recommendations in the first meta-analysis.
