Assessment of Development Results: 2005

Assessment of Development Results: Bangladesh

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers two time periods of the Country Cooperation Framework from 1996 to 2000 and from 2001 to 2005. The evaluation highlighted a number of results produced in the key thematic areas of governance, poverty reduction and the environment. The evaluation concluded that the country office has overcome the programme delivery challenges that UNDP faced in the mid 1990s and has effectively mobilized external resources.

Assessment of Development Results: China

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers the period from 2000 to 2005. The evaluation found that UNDP in China has established a good relationship with the government and is respected for its impartiality and objective approach. UNDP has been invited to participate in discussions in sensitive areas such as governance, inequality, gender and HIV/AIDS. UNDP’s role in helping China become more “open” and more closely integrated into the rest of the world is also well appreciated and recognized. The evaluation was largely concerned with UNDP’s strategic positioning and budget allocation and concluded that, although in general the projects sponsored by UNDP have made a positive contribution to China’s development, their overall impact has been modest.

Assessment of Development Results: Jamaica

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers two programming cycles from 1997 to 2001 and from 2002 to 2006. The evaluation concluded that UNDP has made significant contributions to the national development results in the areas of improved governance, poverty reduction, HIV/AIDS and environmental sustainability and energy. However, the evaluation found that UNDP’s partnership with the government has eroded over time, due to limited resources and differences between the government's and UNDP Jamaica's response to national development priorities.

Assessment of Development Results: Mozambique

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers two programming cycles from 1998 to 2001 and from 2002 to 2006. The evaluation showed that UNDP has been successful in identifying and meeting the needs of the country in the post-conflict phase and it made positive contributions to sustainable peace. Major areas of contributions included capacity building and the establishment of key government institutions. UNDP played an important role in the promotion of local governance through participatory district planning capacity building programme undertaken in collaboration with the United Nations Capital Development Fund.

Assessment of Development Results: Ukraine

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers the period from 1997 to 2004. The evaluation found that UNDP Ukraine has contributed to the national progress by assisting in the process of policy change, building better planning and strategy development capacity, raising awareness of issues critical to human development, helping build networks linking government, civil society and the private sector, and providing financial and organizational support to an array of pilot projects designed to demonstrate new ways of addressing human development challenges.

Assessment of Development Results: Yemen

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers the period from 1997 to 2004. The evaluation found that UNDP has been responsive to national priorities and has established the trust, respect and neutrality vis-à-vis the government and civil society groups of Yemen. Important results have been experienced across UNDP country programme areas, including the establishment of a human rights ministry, successful support to the election process, a strong mine action programme, important strides in decentralization and local governance, coordination of the PRSP process, local poverty alleviation through community involvement and income-generation activities, and key initiatives in water and natural resource management as well as environmental protection.
