Capacity Development and SDGs


As part of the 2030 Agenda, the UN system is mandated (General Assembly's Resolution A/RES/69/237) to contribute to international efforts for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), through strengthening National Evaluation Capacity (NEC). 

Supporting Member States in this regard is part of the core functions of the Independent Evaluation Section (IES) and is included in the UNODC Evaluation Policy. As a result, IES offers technical assistance to strengthening national evaluation capacities and systems, exemplified by a pilot innovative partnership with the Kingdom of Morocco. Click here for more information on IES work on NEC.

IES supports UNODC staff in strengthening evaluation capacity development in a variety of ways. This includes providing technical support and assistance to help guide project managers and evaluators in the evaluation process.

In addition, IES develops and revises evaluation guidelines, templates and tools (including Unite Evaluations) for evaluation management. Moreover, IES uses each evaluation for on-the-job training, tailored to the different needs of the target audience.
