Evaluation policy of UNDP

This evaluation policy from the UNDP has been developed to ensure there is a common basis for evaluations taking place within the organisation.

"The policy seeks to increase transparency, coherence and efficiency in generating and using evaluative knowledge for organizational learning and effective management for results, and to support accountability." (United Nations Development Programme, 2011, p. 2)
