Annual Evaluation Reports
IEU is responsible for preparing the Annual Evaluation Report which summarizes the major findings from evaluations undertaken by external evaluators and managed by Project Managers during a given year.
Annual Evaluation Reports offer UNODC senior management, donors, stakeholders and the wider public an overview of major issues raised by the evaluations, including recommendations, lessons learned and emerging best practices.
A management response by the UNODC's Executive Committee constitutes part of the final version of the reports. Annual Evaluation Reports
