This institutional assessment of UNICEF 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 UNICEF 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 UNICEF’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. MOPAN assessed UNICEF in 2009 and 2012.
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.
