This evaluation is coming at a critical time for UNRWA. The MTS outlines UNRWA’s strategic vision and objectives for its programs and operations, with the aim of maximizing UNRWA’s use of resources and impact for the refugees that it serves. It lays out a set of strategic outcomes designed to meet the needs of Palestine refugees.
The purpose of the evaluation
The primary purpose and value of this evaluation is threefold:
- To support accountability to the Advisory Commission, UNRWA leadership, Palestine refugees and wider stakeholders
- To generate evidence-based insights and learning on the ability of UNRWA to deliver results against its strategic objectives, on the effectiveness of their framework and how to make improvements going forward.
- To inform the development of a new medium-term strategy.
The evaluation covers all UNRWA fields of operations (the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria) and all the programme areas through which UNRWA provides support to Palestine refugees under the five strategic outcomes in the MTS: health, education, relief and social services, infrastructure and camp improvement, microfinance, protection and emergency assistance.
