"IEU's contribution is essential to the success of UNODC and will allow us to couple effectiveness with accountability and transparency in accordance with the wishes of Member States. I, therefore, invite all of our colleagues to engage in the passionate exercise of evaluation, to liaise with our colleagues as often as needed and to regularly consult the IEU website."
