As MOPAN’s members fund the multilateral system, they share a common interest in improving the accountability and performance of the multilateral organisations they fund. Itad and Universalia are leading a MOPAN assessment of UNICEF to support accountability, improve organisational learning and enhance performance.
The MOPAN Secretariat commissions numerous learning-focused assessments every year, as well as thematic reviews to collate and synthesise learning on shared issues. These organisational assessments provide a tool that bilateral donors can use to collectively meet their own standards of accountability and due diligence, to inform strategic dialogue with assessed multilateral organisations, and to contribute to broader learning to improve the workings of the multilateral system. Importantly, MOPAN also aims to strengthen the assessed organisation’s contribution to better development and humanitarian results.
Itad is working closely with the ‘Strategic Working Group’ established by UNICEF to work with MOPAN. Our team is overseeing a participatory assessment to support MOPAN’s learning goals and UNICEF’s interest in developing learning. The assessment will support the development of a new strategic plan, with findings and recommendations intended to inform UNICEF’s leadership.
