The work of the evaluation section is guided by its evaluation plan found in UNESCO's Programme and Budget (C/5).
The Evaluation Plan is based on the 34 C/4 long-term Evaluation Plan. It is a result of extensive consultations with sectors on key evaluation priorities, and it is consistent with the UNESCO Evaluation Strategy (176 EX/27).
The Evaluation Plan covers all components of the evaluation universe i.e. C/4 strategic programme objectives (SPOs), thematic evaluations, and decentralized bodies.
All evaluations managed by EVS are subject to quality assurance based on the UN Norms and Standards in Evaluation. The expected result for the evaluation section during the 2010-2011 period is Policy development and effectiveness and efficiency of programme delivery improved as a result of evaluations.
