Evaluation is defined as a systematic and impartial, non-biased process. It should be as objective as possible, to determine the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and/or sustainability of any of the project-s elements of performance in relation to the set objectives.

The objective of evaluation is to enable the Secretariat and Member States to engage in systematic reflection with a view to increasing the Effectiveness and Efficiency of the project implementation. It is done by regularly reviewing and by adjusting wherever appropriate their content and, if necessary, reviewing their objectives.

Evaluation in ECO is designed to:

  • Improve project performance
  • Promote organisational learning
  • Support accountability
  • Foster team-building and team-working

In its project evaluations, ECO may follow major UN-recognized policies, including the General Assembly resolution A/RES/69/237 (2014), where Member States agree that evaluation is an important component of development processes, and recognize evaluation as a tool that can help strengthen and support development results, and also, Resolution 72/303 (July 2018) which stresses the indispensable roles of external and internal oversight mechanisms, carried out through regular project reviews and the issuance of pertinent recommendations, and that the full and timely implementation of the recommendations of oversight bodies.
