The United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) is an interagency professional network that brings together the evaluation units of the UN system, including UN departments, specialized agencies, funds and programmes, and affiliated organizations. It currently has 50 such members and observers. UNEG's current operational strategies are outlined in the UNEG Principles of Working Together (PWT) (2019) and UNEG Strategy 2020-2024. UNEG’s strategy is implemented through working groups and task forces.
The United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) National Evaluation Capacity Development (NECD) Working Group (WG) has been tasked with preparing a report on progress on implementation of UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/69/237 on “Building capacity for the evaluation of development activities at the country level.” This resolution confirms the importance of building national capacity for the evaluation of development activities and invites UN agencies, with the collaboration of national and international stakeholders, to support efforts to further strengthen the capacity of Member States for evaluation in accordance with their national policies and priorities.
The UNEG NECD WG is seeking an expert in national evaluation capacity development to assist in completing the report, in close consultation with the WG.
Duties and Responsibilities
The UNEG NECD WG has already done significant background work including a preliminary report based on a mapping of UN support to NECD and other resources, as well as developing the conceptual framework for and a detailed outline for the full report. However, the WG requires assistance in expanding the literature review, refining the conceptual framework, gathering additional data on results and lessons learned from a sample of NECD initiatives, and drafting the full report.
