Evaluation of the UN-Habitat, Report of the Office of Internal Oversight ServicesThe present evaluation by the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) sought to assess the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), and the extent to which UN-Habitat has in place the elements to plan for, manage towards and demonstrate results as it embarks on its strategic plan for the period 2014-2019.

During the period under review, UN-Habitat positioned itself as the lead United Nations agency responsible for an area of growing global priority: sustainable urbanization. This corporate priority has not yet cascaded throughout the agency, however. In some countries, its work lacks a sustainable urbanization focus altogether, despite well-established needs related to urbanization.
