Effectiveness and efficiency assessment of UN Women flagship programme initiatives and thematic priorities of the Strategic Plan 2018–2021

UN Women introduced the flagship programme initiatives (FPIs) as a means of consolidating and scaling-up the entity’s programming modalities to better respond to the expectations and goals of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and other international agreements that have recognized the centrality of gender equality and women’s empowerment in sustainable development.

The FPIs represented an evolution in UN Women’s programming designed to create high-impact, scalable initiatives through partnerships to enable the full realization of the entity’s integrated mandate and to be fitter for purpose in the context of the SDGs and United Nations reform.

In 2020, as part of its implementation of the UN Women Corporate Evaluation Plan, the Independent Evaluation Service, in collaboration with the Internal Audit Service, assessed the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, and coherence of the FPIs and their integration as thematic priorities of the Strategic Plan 2018–2021.
