In line with the 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." The Strategy also reflects that "findings of oversight bodies and evaluations will be used to create a learning organization."

INDEPENDENT EVALUATION SECTION

The Independent Evaluation Section (IES) is the operationally independent evaluation function at UNODC, with the Chief of IES reporting directly on the achievements, challenges and opportunities as identified in participatory, independent, inclusive, human rights and gender-responsive evaluations at corporate, policy, programme and project levels to UNODC's Executive Director and Member States.
