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." ... "findings of oversight bodies and evaluations will be used to create a learning organization."
IES revised the UNODC Evaluation Policy in 2022, considering inputs from UNODC Management, Staff and Member States. It now aligns with the Administrative Instruction on Evaluation in the UN Secretariat (ST/AI/2021/3) and the UNODC Strategy 2021-2025, which emphasize the importance of evaluation planning and use of evaluation results.
To implement the Policy, IES revised the Independent Project Evaluation process to become more focused and shorter, while fully meeting requirements for evaluation within the UN as regards independence and credibility.
