UNESCO Evaluation Policy (2015)

UNESCO Evaluation Policy 2015.pdf (351 KB / English)


This updated policy, covering the 2014-2021 period, establishes a framework for ensuring a stronger and more integrated evaluation system within UNESCO that provides credible evidence to support the Organization in achieving its mandate. Building on the main elements of the previous policy, the updated policy provides the opportunity to recast evaluation in line with the renewed requirements of the Organization, most notably the transition to a four-year programme cycle and its relevance to Results Based Budgeting as well changing global priorities. The policy is in line with good practice of current evaluation policies in the United Nations and it complies with the 2005 United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) Norms and Standards and its guiding principles for evaluation and addresses recommendations made by the Joint Inspection Unit.
