CAD evaluates the UN Volunteers Strategic Framework 2014-2017

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme works with UN entities and other partners from the public, civil society and private sector to integrate UN Volunteers into development programming and to promote the value and global recognition of volunteerism. UNV is active in 130 countries with field presence in over 80 countries, and administered by UNDP.

CAD has been contracted to conduct an overall evaluation of the UNV Strategic Framework (SF) 2014-2017 and its associated strategies, policies, and implementation mechanisms at global, regional and country level. The objectives of the evaluation are to assess the performance of and results achieved or expected to be achieved by UNV during the period covered by the SF 2014-2017, to assess the use of the SF as a tool for guiding UNV work and delivering on its mandate, to facilitate learning from the UNV experience during the SF period, and to provide actionable recommendations with regards to the overall UNV strategy and strategic planning process.
