Evaluability Assessment of UNIFEM Strategic Plan

Client // UN Women
Country //
Date // 2008 - 2011

IOD PARC was commissioned to conduct an evaluability assessment of the UNIFEM Strategic Plan (2008-2011), its associated results frameworks and institutional systems. The study assessed UNIFEM's experience of implementing the Strategic Plan, with a view to informing the new strategic planning process of UN Women.

The assessment undertook technical appraisal of corporate, thematic, regional, sub-regional and country Strategic Plan documents and results frameworks; in-depth analysis of 8 sub-regional and 8 country offices; and field visits to two sub-regional (Andean and Central and Eastern Europe) and two country offices (Colombia and Albania). It concluded that UN Women should improve the technical rigour of their next corporate Strategic Plan, with a clear theory of change, results logic, pathways and tracking systems, but allow countries and sections to flexibly identify their contributions to results, and to developed linked reporting frameworks.
