Section two gives an overview of the different types of evaluation implemented by UNDP programme units. Programme units, especially Country Offices, should ensure that their evaluation plans include a variety of these evaluation approaches in order to ensure as broad a spectrum of evaluation results as possible are captured during the Country Programme Document (CPD) cycle. This supports UNDP accountability and the capturing of experience and knowledge to strengthen work within the country, the regional and as an organisation.
UNDP implements a variety of different evaluations at different levels and using varied approaches. This section gives an overview of these evaluations and approaches, why we use these evaluations, evaluation timing and how they may be carried out, as well as the use of evaluation results and links to more detailed guidance where available.
