This portal presents details of development results and organizational performance in 2018, the first year of the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. Each indicator of the Strategic Plan’s results framework is displayed as a two-sided scorecard: side A shows a graphic representation of 2018 performance, side B shows the details of the indicator (baselines, milestones and targets, 2018 result). In addition, this portal offers a global overview of development results, expenses by outcomes and regions and resource mobilization.
All indicators, as well as their baselines and targets, are based on the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan’s Integrated Resource and Results Framework (IRRF). To further refine performance management and strengthen accountability, UN-Women undertook a comprehensive validation exercise to cross-check baselines, milestones and targets in late 2017-early 2018. Based on the results of this exercise, the baselines, milestones and/or targets of 64 indicators were more fully populated / updated in 2018. The latest version of the IRRF is available here.
For output indicators, progress from baselines to 2018 milestones is noted in this portal using three categories: progress of 90% or more towards the milestones (green), progress of 60% to 89% (amber) and progress less than 60% (red). Impact and outcome indicators do not have milestones. For non-SDG outcome indicators, progress was measured against a quarter of the 4-year target. Some of the impact and outcome indicators are derived from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework.
The methodology applied to indicator measurement is in most cases either cumulative (an accumulation of results so far) or annual (a measure of results within the current year). The accumulation methodology calculates results through a count of the number of cases (generally countries) eligible towards that indicator, including the baseline value, in the current and previous years since the start of the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. Countries are counted only once throughout the Strategic Plan period, unless stated otherwise. An indicator with an annual measure calculates results through a count of the number of cases reported towards that indicator in the current year only. The sources for measuring each indicator is specified in the IRRF, with the majority being reported directly by UN-Women field presences, through UN-Women’s Results Management System, which provides a comprehensive platform for recording, consolidating, viewing, and analyzing results. For indicators where UN-Women’s Results Management System is the source, a detailed list of countries included in the result on each indicator is included in the footnotes on the relevant page.
