The Independent Evaluation Section (IES) delivers products and services in line with its three strategic pillars of mandated work, with pillar 3 focusing on: Knowledge Products, Communication, Partnerships and Innovation. In line with UNODC Strategy 2021-2025: "UNODC will conduct evaluations in UNODC's mandated areas of work, as well as utilize evaluation and oversight results to provide information at an aggregate level, for example, through meta-syntheses."
