Assessment of Development Results: Argentina


The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers two programming cycles from 2002 to 2004 and from 2005 to 2008 extended to 2009. The evaluation found that UNDP’s cooperation programme in Argentina was aligned to national priorities and demonstrated a responsive capacity to emerging development challenges. UNDP played a key role of a convener and honest broker by bringing together development actors from government, civil society and the political system at the federal, provincial and municipal levels to face common challenges. There was an expressed concern from its partners about UNDP’s concentration on the administration of Government resources. The evaluation suggested the new medium-term strategy focused on the institutional capacity-building, competitiveness and equity demonstrates a shift in the right direction and needs to be sustained. More attention needs to be paid to the sustainability of the benefits and results of UNDP-supported interventions. The evaluation highlighted the importance of a highly qualified human factor endowment for providing technical assistance in middle-income countries.
