Post-project evaluations posted on-line to advance learning and transparency

Here, UNDEF publishes all post-project evaluations conducted by its contracted commercial evaluators, Transtec. The decision to make these public was taken at the November 2011 meeting of the UNDEF Advisory Board, which is committed to commercial evaluation of UNDEF projects as a basis for knowledge-sharing, lessons learned, improved project selection and management, and transparency. In this way, UNDEF consolidates its position as one of the most transparent entities in the UN family.

Based in Brussels with a regional office in Beirut, Transtec has broad experience in evaluations, audits and studies in institution-building, democracy, governance, community development and post-conflict rehabilitation. In addition to evaluating a majority of UNDEF's single-country projects in the Second and Third Rounds, Transtec has also conducted cluster evaluations in several of UNDEF's thematic areas, including youth gender and elections media rule of law indigenous and marginalized communities and general election-related activities.
