Evaluation at UNFPA serves three main purposes that support the organization’s drive to achieve results: (i) evaluation is a means to demonstrate accountability to stakeholders on performance in achieving development results, and on invested resources; (ii) evaluation supports evidence-based decision-making. Utilization-focused evaluations provide credible information to support decision-making by management, where such information guides planning, budgeting, implementation and reporting, as well as improvements in policies and programmes; (iii) evaluation contributes important lessons learned to the existing knowledge base on how to accelerate implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development, in particular, on how best to advance sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights, and on how UNFPA can best support the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
Country Programme evaluations
The purpose of the UNFPA Evaluation Database is to make publicly available all evaluation reports conducted by UNFPA. The database is regularly updated with reports from country offices, regional offices or headquarter services. Reports are searchable by thematic keyword, by UNFPA mandate area and by country.
The UNFPA Evaluation Database is managed by the Evaluation Office.
