The assessment approach
MOPAN’s "Common Approach" is a joint, annual assessment of a set of multilateral organisations
MOPAN collects data through a survey, a review of documents published by the multilateral organisations and consultations with staff members from the multilateral organisations under review. The assessment is intended to generate relevant and credible information about multilateral organisations to assist MOPAN members in meeting domestic accountability requirements. It also aims to promote dialogue between MOPAN members, multilateral organisations and their direct partners..
MOPAN assessments focus on whether organisations have in place four dimensions of organisational effectiveness: strategic, operational, relationship and knowledge management. Since 2012 MOPAN also assessed the results achieved by multilateral organisations. » Full list of members (including links).
