    Decent work results and effectiveness of ILO operations: A meta-analysis of project evaluations, 2009-2010

    31 October 2011

    In mid-2011, the ILO Evaluation Unit (EVAL) synthesized the findings, conclusions and lessons learned from 59 independent evaluation reports completed in 2009 and 2010. The purpose of the study was twofold: to present a summary of evaluation results on ILO performance within the framework of the SPF 2010–15 based on a request from the ILO Governing Body to better synthesize information on Office effectiveness and achievement of results; and to establish a baseline, methodology and information system for reporting such results each biennium.

    Meta analysis of lessons learned and good practices arising from nine Decent Work Country Programme evaluations

    28 October 2011

    In 2006, the ILO began evaluating the performance of its Decent Work Country Programmes (DWCPs). Between 2006 and 2009, six such evaluations were undertaken and evaluation reports published - covering Argentina, Indonesia, Jordan, Philippines, Ukraine and Zambia. The ILO commissioned this meta analysis in order to derive lessons learned and identify good practices arising from these evaluations.
