UNDP Evaluation Policy_Nov2010_approvedJan2011.pdf (83 KB / English)

Overview

The revised evaluation policy of UNDP was approved by the Executive Board in January 2011. This policy reflects the Executive Board decision on the independent review of the first evaluation policy (2006) and the management response.

***

Revisions were made to clarify roles and responsibilities and to improve the evaluation practice in UNDP. Notably, greater importance has been given to national ownership in evaluation; national evaluation capacity development; and use of evaluation for organizational learning and accountability. A new compliance requirement for decentralized evaluations has also been introduced in this policy. 

The policy applies to UNDP (global, regional, country, south-south programmes and all other programmatic activities), as well as its associated fund and programme ? the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme, and will be subject to periodic independent review.
