Evaluer et tirer les enseignements
Fonction d'évaluation à l'UNICEF
The guiding principles of the Evaluation Function at UNICEF emanate from the decisions taken by the Executive Board which can be found in the UNICEF Evaluation Policy and from the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) Norms and Standards, Principles and Code of Conduct for Evaluation. The purpose of evaluation is to ensure that UNICEF has timely, strategically focused and objective information on the performance of its policies, programmes and initiatives to produce better results for children and women. It is to strengthen evidence-based decision-maing and advocacy, transparency, coherence and effectiveness. Furthermore, the purpose and use of evaluation is to determine the relevance, impact, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of the interventions and contributions of the organizations of the United Nations system.
UNICEF conducts evaluations at five institutional levels reflecting the organizational accountability framework: local or project, country programme of cooperation, regional, global strategic and institutional performance. Decentralization is a key characteristic of the UNICEF evaluation system: together with programme countries, UNICEF country offices will continue to commission most UNICEF evaluation work. Evaluation asks three key questions: Are we doing the right thing? Are we doing it right? How can we do it better?
We ask these questions about UNICEF-supported country programmes - UNICEF's specific contribution at country level - as well as how we work as an organization, regionally and globablly. Asking these questions helps us learn and makes us more accountable to national partners, donors, ister orgnaizations, ourselves and ultimately to children and women.
