UN-Habitat evaluates its work to assess how well its interventions are achieving the intended results and how effectively they are contributing to broad development goals. This is done by assessing what is achieved and by making recommendations that feed into policy, programme/ project development and implementation. An independent Evaluation Unit was established in January 2012 to further improve and strengthen the evaluation function.
