With the aim to continuously improve transparency and use of evaluation, UNICEF Evaluation Office manages the “Global Evaluation Reports Oversight System”. Within this system, an external independent company reviews and rates all evaluation reports. MoRES (Monitoring Results for Equity System) was developed as an approach to operationalize the equity agenda and accelerate progress in reaching the most deprived children. MoRES is defined by UNICEF as ‘a conceptual framework for effective planning, programming, implementation, monitoring and managing for results to achieve desired outcomes for the most disadvantaged children ’. The evaluation has sought to explore the relevance of MoRES to this equity refocus and to analyse its application across a range of country contexts. This report presents the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the formative evaluation of UNICEF’s MoRES. The objective of the evaluation was to support continuing efforts across UNICEF to articulate, develop and mainstream the MoRES approach by learning from experience. The report finds that the equity refocus has significantly sharpened UNICEF’s attention on the needs of the world’s most vulnerable children and that MoRES represents a potent blend of strategic and operational intent.
