Assessment of Development Results: Mongolia


The evaluation examines the strategic relevance and positioning of UNDP support and contributions to the development of Mongolia from 2002 to early 2010. The report assesses UNDP interventions under various thematic areas of the country programme, with a view to providing forward-looking recommendations for the next country programme, for the period 2012-2017.

The evaluation finds that the UNDP programme was well aligned to national strategies and addressed critical development challenges faced by the country due to the strength of its partnership with the Government. UNDP’s contributions were most notable in policy support, which has led to the incorporation of a human development perspective into the country’s broad policy framework. However, the evaluation also finds that UNDP has largely remained an implementer of development projects that often were not followed up, scaled up or replicated by national partners. The report recommends that UNDP should provide strategic support to national efforts and refrain from running parallel programmes and projects.
