ICRC Evaluation Strategy 2022-2024

The ICRC Evaluation Strategy 2022-2024 provides a common understanding of the purpose for evaluation in the ICRC, and guides how evaluations are planned, managed, conducted, and used across the organization. The strategy promotes quality evaluations that contribute to organizational learning, accountability, and the ICRC’s mission to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. It aligns the ICRC’s evaluation practice with industry standards, while addressing the specific needs of the organization as a specialized organization with a unique humanitarian mandate. The strategy outlines: the guiding principles of evaluation at the ICRC, a framework to guide evaluation practice and ensure their quality, the role and structure of the Evaluation Office, parameters for evaluation staffing and budgeting, and the implementation and review process for the evaluation strategy.
