The evaluation examined the UNDP contributions to the development results in Brazil from 2002 to 2010. The evaluation found that UNDP was well positioned as a development partner of the Government of Brazil. Its positioning was based on the promotion of human development and on its capacity for project management. It also found that the contribution to the achievement of development results by thematic area was highly relevant, moderately effective and efficient, and highly responsive. The analysis of the sample of projects used for the evaluation showed that the benefits of UNDP contributions were sustainable to a limited extent.
The evaluation has provided recommendations
to allow UNDP to build on the lessons learned
from its programme in the past years. It recommends
the identification, in partnership with the
Brazilian Government, of topics that orient a new
strategy for UNDP in Brazil; topics that keep
the linkages with national development strategy
while effectively contributing to advance the
human development in Brazil.
