Assessment of Development Results: Botswana


The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers the Country Cooperation Framework period from 2003 to 2008. The evaluation found that the overall performance of the Cooperation Framework was adequate and UNDP has made a significant contribution in addressing country development needs. The evaluation found there is a need in all practice areas to sharpen the focus of work in certain sectors. The linkage between the UNDP projects and the intended outcomes of the country programme is at times weak and needs to be strengthened. The evaluation noted the impact of UNDP-supported interventions on local populations has been positive but often limited to target groups that include a relatively small number of people. In the practice area of HIV/AIDS, the most notable achievements have been in strengthening institutional capacity; however, the evaluation noted UNDP can strengthen its strategic role in this practice area by taking more proactive steps to dialogue with key players.
