The importance of evaluation to inform policy-making and decision-taking has increased over
the past years, driven by United Nations reform initiatives and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The demand for
increased cohesiveness, cooperation and consolidation in the UN’s work within and between Agencies and Member States makes
a strong case for aggregating, synthesizing and learning from the results of individual, independent evaluations.
In this context, IES developed an evaluation-based meta-synthesis of UNODC evaluation results
on crime prevention, as well as related evaluation methods and best practices identified in these evaluations to prevent crime.
The new innovative product has a dedicated chapter on preventing violent extremism - one of the themes of the Fourteenth Crime
Congress and a UNODC mandated area of work. (Report; Brief)
