2014 Year in Review

2014 was an action packed year for us. Here is a snapshot with key highlights!

Evaluation of the Contribution of the Global and Regional Human Development Reports to Public Policy Processes

UNDP launched its first global Human Development Report (HDR) in 1990 to raise awareness and generate debate on public issues and concerns. This evaluation was the first such evaluation carried out by IEO to assess the global and regional HDRs’ contributions to public policy processes. In approving the evaluation, the UNDP Executive Board recognized the important contribution of HDRs to public debate and public policy. The objectives of the evaluation are to: (i) guide UNDP in refining its intellectual contribution to development though the HDRs, and; (ii) hold UNDP accountable for the use of its human and financial resources in preparing and disseminating the HDRs.

Evaluation of the Role of UNDP in Supporting National Achievement of the Millennium Development Goals

At its 2013 second regular session, the UNDP Executive Board requested that IEO carry out a thematic evaluation of the “role of UNDP in supporting national achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)”. The Board noted the strategic importance of MDGs and the potential to extract lessons learned for the post-2015 global development agenda. The objectives of the evaluation are to (i) assess the results achieved by UNDP in supporting national achievement of the MDGs (ii) identify the factors that affected UNDP contribution and performance, including: strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities, and the decisions, strategies and approaches that worked and did not; and (iii) provide strategic recommendations for fine tuning the institutional strategy of support to the post-2015 agenda.
