The Institute’s evaluation function is guided by an evaluation policy and is operationalized at the centralized and decentralized levels. At the centralized level, the Planning, Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Unit acts as the custodian of the evaluation function and undertakes independent evaluations of projects and other undertakings e.g. on a cluster or thematic basis. At the decentralized level, Programme Units undertake self-evaluations of projects and activities, the results of which are usually incorporated in project narrative reports.
An Evaluation Advisory Board advises UNITAR on the conduct, use and follow-up on evaluation as a tool to support the Institute’s governance and oversight functions.
UNITAR is a member of the United Nations Evaluation Group, a professional network of some 50 United Nations agencies. UNITAR evaluation staff also engage with other professional networks, including the EVALSDGs network, which was established under EvalPartners in response to the need to embed effective monitoring, evaluation and learning in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
