Evaluation is defined as a systematic and discrete process, as objective as possible, to determine the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and/or sustainability of any element of a programme’s performance in relation to their objectives. 

 

The objective of evaluation is to enable the Secretariat and member States to engage in systematic reflection with a view to increasing the effectiveness of the programmes by altering their content and, if necessary, reviewing their objectives.

 

Evaluation in UNECE is designed to:


Improve programme performance
Promote organisational learning
Support accountability.

Through the 2014 General Assembly resolution A/RES/69/237, member States agree that evaluation is an important component of development processes, and recognize evaluation as a country level tool that can help strengthen and support development results. Resolution 72/303 of July 2018 stresses the indispensable roles of external and internal oversight mechanisms, carried out through regular audit reviews and the issuance of pertinent recommendations, and that the full and timely implementation of the recommendations of oversight bodies.
