Evaluation Policy




1. Evaluations must be utilization-focused as a fundamental requirement for guaranteeing ownership by and addressing the needs of stakeholders in projects and programmes of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

2. Evaluation is a learning tool, which is why the evaluation process needs to be transparent and  consultative. Participation enhances learning, since the reflection of different interests, needs and perceptions empowers all parties involved.

3. Evaluations should lead to the timely incorporation of findings, recommendations and lessons into the policies, strategies and decision-making processes of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

4. The independence, objectivity and impartiality of the evaluation process must be upheld at all times, as these qualities give credibility and legitimacy to evidence-based evaluation results.
