Full Report Evaluation Brief


The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers two country cooperation frameworks from 1998 to 2006. The evaluation found that overall UNDP has contributed to foster democratic governance and the rule of law by promoting institutional capacity building of national and sub national institutions, as well as by promoting dialogue among development actors on national needs, including incorporation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) into national planning. The evaluation showed that UNDP has proven to have a leadership role in coordinating discussions between the Government and civil society organizations. The evaluation also found that in an effort to generate additional operational resources, and to respond to the demands of government and international agencies, UNDP had expanded its role in development support services, spreading the portfolio too thin and adversely affecting the programme’s relevance. The production of national and sub national human development reports is one of the key products and contributed to the increased national ownership and capacity building. Overall the evaluation found that UNDP-led programme of interventions during the period 1998-2006 contributed to development results that strengthened the country’s peace and development process.
