In response to the request by the UNICEF Executive Board to enhance the quality and use of evaluations managed by UNICEF, and in line with the Evaluation Policy, the Evaluation Office in 2010 established the Global Evaluation Reports Oversight System (GEROS). A major component of the system is the review of the quality of final evaluation reports by an independent external company.

The Evaluation Office is pleased to announce the 2018 best evaluations. Congratulations to all UNICEF Offices who are on this list of the 13 best of UNICEF 2018 evaluations!
