Evaluation and good practices

Good practices

Identifying “good practices” is a necessary part of organisational learning and the pursuit of programme excellence. 

Good practices distil innovative and validated approaches -- be they in programming, advocacy or management.  Identifying good practices is part of ongoing monitoring and evaluative processes. Good practices can be assessed and documented using different methodologies with varying degrees of complexity and rigour.  These methodologies can range from careful analysis of first hand experience by programme managers and partners, to programme or management reviews, to more in-depth case studies and consultations.  All good practices are an attempt to better understand what works (and what does not work!), how, why and in what conditions.  Here good practices are distinguished from lessons from evaluation, which tend to be more explicitly substantiated. 

Good practices allow UNICEF and partners to learn from experience and pursue the best approaches in each context to help children and women realise their human rights.
