General Assembly-mandated Evaluations
The CERF secretariat has commissioned a number of formal evaluations to assess the fund’s overall performance and value added. These include the General Assembly-mandated two- and five-year evaluations of CERF, and an interim evaluation carried out after the first year of CERF’s operations in 2006.
To ensure credibility, transparency and independence, all evaluations are conducted by external evaluation experts. All evaluations include a formal management response, which addresses recommendations and identifies responsibilities for follow-up action.
