Challenges and room for improvement

  • Memoranda of Understanding and objectives failed sampling.

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Unicef should work to improve some of the low scoring indicators at the activity level, in particular financial information and results data.
  • It should sustain its transparency efforts and share best practice with other UN agencies.
  • It should design a strategy for internal and external use of its data, in particular at country level.
