Our goals for inspection and evaluation
The Inspection and Evaluation Division (IED) aims to help the Organization be more relevant, efficient and effective in accordance with its mandate (A/RES/48/218 B). IED strives to be the best source of information for helping the United Nations work better.
Our evidence-based inspections and evaluations:
- provide accountability to Member States and the public for the activities and resources of the Organization
- help programmes deliver better results to obtain their objectives and mandates
- foster institutional learning by UN management, staff, stakeholders and partners
