Evaluations for the UN

Evaluations for the United Nations

At Econometría we have conducted multiple evaluations of Country Programmes, focused programmes and operations of United Nations organizations in Latin America, Asia and Africa, such as UNICEF, the World Food Programme (WFP), UNHCR, UN Women, FAO, Unesco, IOM, and ILO, among others. A long-term contract with Unicef was established to carry out evaluations of impact, examples of which include: an evaluation of the nutritional improvement programme for children in Nepal, the creation of a baseline for the programme against child marriage in Afganistan, the evaluation of the ‘Bringing Up with Love’ (Criando con Amor) programme in Honduras, the evaluation of the Country Programme in Ethiopia, and work to improve the efficiency of the organization in Africa. We have worked on an ongoing, long-term basis with the WFP since 2012 to provide services to evaluate centralized and decentralized outlines, carrying out multiple evaluations of Country Programmes, operations and strategies in Cuba, Nicaragua, Colombia, Bolivia, Haiti, Central America, the Caribbean, Guinea Bissau and Gambia, among others.

Our contribution

Econometría is the only Latin-American company to be granted a long-term contract with the WFP. We have contributed, for both the WFP and other organizations, to the search for evidence for successes and challenges in decision-making processes, with the objective of creating and implementing more relevant, effective, efficient and sustainable interventions, in areas such as food and nutrition, reduction of poverty, comprehensive development of boys and girls, gender equality, protection for refugees, and human rights.
