Assessment of Development Results: Mozambique


The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers two programming cycles from 1998 to 2001 and from 2002 to 2006. The evaluation findings show that UNDP’s record of meeting the needs of the country in the post-conflict phase was excellent and it made positive contributions to sustainable peace. Major areas of its contribution include capacity building and the establishment of key government institutions at a time when very few development partners were operating in Mozambique. A critical contribution has been the promotion of local governance through participatory district planning, a flagship capacity building programme undertaken in collaboration with the United Nations Capital Development Fund. The evaluation concluded that UNDP poverty reduction programmes were too disparate, lacking strategic focus, and have not as yet demonstrated the promising results such as those evident in the area of local governance and decentralization. Overall, the evaluation underlines the need for UNDP to adjust its strategies to meet new priorities and the challenges of a changing nation.
