Peer Review of the Evaluation Function of UN-Habitat

UNEG-Habitat-web.pdf (1009 KB / English)


The peer review was conducted by a panel of three members of UN and bilateral evaluation units supported by a senior expert. The panel based its work on the UNEG-DAC Framework for Peer Reviews and on the Norms and Standards for Evaluation in the UN System. In agreement with UN-Habitat, the panel explicitly chose a light version of the peer review modality, which did not include field visits. The report welcomes the intention of UN-Habitat to establish a full fledged evaluation unit, separate from monitoring. It concludes with a number of recommendations, well in line with the establishment of an independent and credible evaluation function at UN-Habitat.
