Assessment of Development Results: Brazil


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.
