UNEG Guidance on integrating disability inclusion in evaluations and reporting on the UNDIS evaluation indicator_March2022.pdf (794 KB / English)

Overview

The United Nations Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS) provides the foundation for sustainable and transformative progress on disability inclusion through all pillars of the work of the United Nations. The Strategy consists of a system-wide policy and an accountability framework organized in 15 performance indicators. The indicator 10 of the UNDIS accountability framework assesses the extent to which an entity considers disability inclusion in all phases of the evaluation process and in every type of evaluation that it does.

As part of the it's work plan in 2021, the UNEG Gender Equality, Disability and Human Rights Working Group commissioned the development of this guidance on the integration of disability inclusion in evaluations and reporting on the UNDIS evaluation indicator. The preparation of this guidance note was informed and enriched by consultations with a number of individuals and organizations, including organizations of persons with disabilities. The main expected users of the guidance are evaluation commissioners and managers, as well as external consultants conducting evaluations.

On 10th March 2022, the UNEG Gender, Human Rights and Disability Inclusion Working Group organized an Evaluation Practice Exchange session to launch the UNEG Guidelines for Disability Inclusion in Evaluations and Reporting on the UNDIS. The session featured:

  1. An introduction and overview of the guidance;

  2. Remarks from the Executive Office of the Secretary General UNDIS Secretariat; and

  3. A panel discussion with UN evaluators on utility and application of the guidance in evaluations.
