This evaluation covers the period of two country cooperation frameworks from 2001 to 2005 and from 2006 to 2009. During this period the strategic framework of UNDP in Peru was significantly revised in order to accompany the national democratization process and to respond to the requirements of the Millennium Development Goals. UNDP refocused its programme privileging more substantive support. In a middle income emerging country such as Peru, the evaluation recommends further focusing and deepening the organization’s strategic axes and emphasizing its support to reform of public administration and the civil service system and strengthening the capacity of regional and municipal governments.
The evaluation also recommends that UNDP further diversify its partnerships and clarify its cooperation strategy with civil society and the private sector and with new emerging partners (global funds and private foundations) in order to strengthen programme sustainability.
