Monitoring and evaluation
Monitoring and evaluation offer technical support to ensure that the Country Office and the national counterparts have documentation about the situation of children
- Available in:
UNICEF Cuba’s Monitoring and Evaluation area provides technical support for the systematic analysis of childhood and adolescence. This area ensures the availability of reliable documentation on trends in the institutional and political context and the assessment of their impact on the situation of children, particularly on the most vulnerable ones.
This area works to support the demand, generation and use of data to monitor childhood progress in the 2030 Agenda. It contributes to creating alliances and coordinating actions to measure, gather, analyse and use childhood indicators in the Sustainable Development Goals framework.
In terms of oversight and quality assurance, this area participates in the planning and implementation of integrated strategies of follow-up, revision and report of results of the Country Program. It offers methodological assistance for the use of integrated childhood indicators, the management of statistics from diverse sources and the collection of disaggregated data in the analysis of equity gaps. It also coordinates a knowledge management strategy to generate empirical evidence and qualitative analysis of the results for children and adolescents.
The Monitoring and Evaluation area is fully involved in the national implementation and result analysis of the MICS survey program through its technical expertise and logistic and financial support.
A challenge in this area constitutes the development of capacities and the strengthening of an evaluation culture among UNICEF Cuba’s partners and counterparts, in order to promote accountability of the results, learning and informed decisions about childhood policies and programs.
