Revised Evaluation Policy of UNICEF

This document form UNICEF outlines a revised policy for conducting evaluations.  The policy describes the purpose and use of evaluations; UNICEF’s guiding principles and standards for evaluation; the resource requirements; and the need for evaluation partnerships.


"The revised Evaluation Policy governs the organization’s evaluation function and provides a comprehensive framework for all evaluation activities undertaken by UNICEF. It addresses not only the conduct of evaluations and the use of evaluation results, but also the development of the evaluation function within UNICEF and its role in strengthening evaluation capacity among national partners. The policy is intended to inform and guide UNICEF staff and stakeholders about the purpose and contribution of evaluation at UNICEF and the organization’s expectations and requirements regarding the conduct of evaluation activities. It applies to the organization’s work at all levels, and across all contexts, including humanitarian situations." (UNICEF, 2013)
