External evaluations


As a UNESCO Institute intent on reflecting on its practice and applying lessons to improve its work, IIEP draws on a strong monitoring and evaluation system. IIEP’s monitoring relies a range of practices supported by three interlinked information systems, including a project portfolio management system. The Institute reports on the twenty key performance indicators of its 10th Medium-Term Strategy and through a narrative annual report to its Governing Board, which is shared with partners and posted online.  The Institute also undergoes an annual financial audit by the UNESCO Auditor.

With regard to evaluation, IIEP’s strategy is aligned with the broader UNESCO Evaluation Policy. In addition to project-specific evaluations, IIEP periodically commissions evaluations of its different programme lines of work. These external reviews help the Institute better understand its impact, improve its programme implementation, and inform strategic orientations, often as key inputs to the design of a new Medium-Term Strategy.  IIEP also uses evaluations to communicate evidence to its wide set of stakeholders. Ultimately, evaluations contribute to further strengthening IIEP’s support to UNESCO Member States in attaining Sustainable Development Goal 4.

Both programme and large project evaluations are available on this page:
