Decent work results and effectiveness of ILO operations: Meta-analysis of development cooperation evaluations, 2020-21

This meta-analysis includes all independent project evaluations completed in 2020 and a selection of evaluations from 2021. It examines development effectiveness in the delivery of decent work results, by focusing on relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of results; and by providing evidence of results supporting achievement of decent work outcomes. A comparative approach is taken, drawing on findings from previous meta-analyses to assess recent trends in performance. Findings and recommendations aim to guide the ILO’s operational approach to development cooperation interventions.
