The Independent Evaluation Section (IES) of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is responsible for leading, planning, coordinating and undertaking evaluations of UNODC programmes and projects in support to lesson learning and accountability.

IES has a continuing programme of evaluations for which suitable evaluation consultants are sought. Qualified evaluators worldwide who are available for short-term assignments can express their interest in providing their international expertise, preferably in at least one of UNODC's work topics: alternative development, corruption, drug prevention, treatment and care, HIV and AIDS, human trafficking and migrant smuggling, criminal justice, prison reform and crime prevention, money laundering, organized crime, piracy and/or terrorism prevention. The applications received will be reviewed and placed in the IES Evaluation Consultants Roster.

Given the high number of applications sent on a daily basis, only qualified, shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
