Evaluation Tools


Evaluation Tools

All evaluation tools on this website (i)  are in line with the Norms and Standards of the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) and (ii)  ensure a coherent approach in terms of evaluations across the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. See also Evaluation Policy and Evaluation Handbook.


In line with the Special Message of 31 July 2014 ( please click here), the participatory self-evaluation modality will no longer be an option for projects at UNODC.

 From 01 July 2014 onwards, only two types of evaluation will exist at UNODC: Independent Project Evaluations and In-Depth Evaluations. Therefore, all new projects, even with an overall budget below USD 1,000,000, need to plan for and reserve sufficient funding for an Independent Project Evaluation
