Assessment of Development Results: Guyana


During the past two programming cycles (2001-2005 and 2006-2010) under evaluation, UNDP in Guyana responded well to the short-term (floods in 2005 and election in 2006), as well as long-term development priorities of the country within the framework of the key national development strategies. The evaluation found that the country office has started to address a few challenges with programme manage­ment such as delayed project implementation and weak monitoring and evaluation.

The evaluation recommended that it is important for UNDP Guyana to continue to reorient its programming towards higher-level policy analysis in order to support the country’s transition to a middle-income status. Also, UNDP needs to focus on its comparative advantage, and help Guyana explore alternative sources of support through South-South, regional and public-private partnerships.
