System-wide Evaluation in Support of UN Reform: Towards Collective Accountability & Learning

IES actively contributes to strategic discussions on the new draft policy for System-wide Evaluation through the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG). This is one of various efforts to further strengthen the normative evaluation framework in the UN system.  

Read more in the UNEG White Paper. The paper reflects on the possible role and contribution of UNEG to inform/guide UN reform, with a particular focus on Agenda 2030. It offers some ideas on how to strengthen the synergies between agency specific and system-wide evaluation at global level and how to maximize the value-added of system-wide evaluation as a key driver for a stronger, more accountable and effective UN system.
