This institutional assessment of UN-Habitat covers the period from 2014 to mid-2016. Applying the MOPAN 3.0 methodology, the assessment considers organisational systems, practices and behaviours, as well as the results UN-Habitat achieves. The assessment considers five performance areas: four relate to organisational effectiveness (strategic management, operational management, relationship management and performance management) and the fifth relates to development effectiveness (results). It assesses UN-Habitat’s performance against a framework of key indicators and associated micro-indicators that comprise the standards that characterise an effective multilateral organisation. The assessment also provides an overview of its performance trajectory. This is the first MOPAN assessment of UN-Habitat.
MOPAN assessed 12 multilateral organisations in the 2015-16 cycle. These are: the African Development Bank (AfDB); GAVI; the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria (The Global Fund), the Inter- American Development Bank (IDB), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), UN-HABITAT, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), and the World Bank.
