In line with the UNODC Strategy 2021-2025: "UNODC (through the Independent Evaluation Section) 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."
 
The Independent Evaluation Section (IES) at UNODC conducts participatory, independent, inclusive, gender-responsive and utilization-focused evaluations at corporate/policy/programme and projects levels, contributing to UNODC's accountability and evaluation-based decision-making in the response to drugs, crime, corruption and terrorism. IES further ensures a wide variety of services and products in line with its three strategic pillars of mandated work. Click on the texts below or on the three pillar symbols for more information.
