The UNICEF Evaluation function helps UNICEF deliver results for children by fostering evidence-based decision-making. The Evaluation Office works with other divisions at UNICEF headquarters, regional and country offices, as well as with partners, to conduct dozens of evaluations each year. Conclusions and recommendations from these evaluations are essential for shaping policies, programmes, advocacy and partnerships at all levels of the organization. The UNICEF Evaluation Office is also a key actor in strengthening evaluation capacity at the country level.
What we do
We undertake a diverse set of evaluations to ensure UNICEF learns from past and ongoing experiences to improve future outcomes. We also help bolster the capacity of national evaluation systems by working with Governments and other partners to strengthen skills and evaluate child-focused policies and programmes.
