The real-time assessment (RTA) of the UNICEF response to COVID-19 at the country level is a good illustration of how the UNICEF evaluation function sought to work differently during the COVID-19 pandemic. The RTA process was rolled out in 41 countries and 7 regions between October 2020 and April 2021 and was intended to support UNICEF regional offices with a forward-looking reflection on the pandemic, based on how country offices were responding at that point in time. Through remote data collection, this exercise explored issues of adaptation, implementation and quality of the UNICEF response. The RTA process has delivered multiple products (at regional, country and global level). This vlog touches upon key RTA findings, as outlined in the RTA global synthesis report.
