Joint evaluations

© UNICEF/NYHQ2007-2386/Roger LeMoyne

Joint evaluations are conducted in partnership between UNICEF Evaluation Office and other UN agencies, donors, governments, other UNICEF sections/divisions, and other partners.  The scope of these evaluations are defined jointly by the organizers/managers of the evaluation.  There are various degrees of “jointness” depending on the extent to which individual partners cooperate in the evaluation process, merge their evaluation resources and combine their evaluation reporting.  Regardless of the level of ‘jointness’ though, a truly collaborative joint evaluation means sharing decisions concerning the evaluation’s planning and management, its scope of work, the team composition, the methodology, the reporting format and findings, and many other aspects.  Joint evaluations can help overcome attribution problems in assessing the effectiveness of programs and strategies, the degree to which efforts supported by different partners are complementary, the quality of aid coordination, and so on.
