Evaluation of the Open UN-Habitat Transparency Initiative 1/2016
Through the Open UN-Habitat web portal, which is part of the open UN-Habitat Transparency Initiative, UN-Habitat is able to show donors, partners and the public where and with whom the agency is working, the decisions taken, as well as the funding and reporting related to each project implemented or supported by UN-Habitat. The evaluation found the initiative timely and highly relevant. Evaluation survey respondents and interviewees see the Open UN-Habitat Transparency initiative as supportive to the needs of donors, partners, beneficiaries and UN-Habitat staff and supporting UN-Habitat’s reputation in development aid transparency. Several organizations are using the Open UN-Habitat website platform, including UNESCO, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Open Aid.
