31 Jul 2019


UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. It supports countries' efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, which will guide global development priorities for the next 11 years.

UNDP’s Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) works to enhance UNDP's development effectiveness through independent thematic and programmatic evaluations and contributes to organizational learning, accountability and transparency. IEO assures the quality and use of UNDP evaluations by establishing norms, standards and guidelines and by knowledge sharing and networking with both internal and external partners.

The Director heads an independent office and provides all evaluation reports directly and independently to the Executive Board in line with the UNDP Evaluation Policy.

The impact of results will be to support the following:

  • Credibility of UNDP through validation of UNDP results;
  • Improved organizational learning, accountability and transparency;
  • Strengthened evaluation functoin throughout UNDP, including country office, and
  • Effective interagency coordination in evaluation

Full details are available on the UNDP website. Deadline for applications is 22nd September 2019.
