Assessment of Development Results: Papua New Guinea

2011

The evaluation examines the strategic relevance and positioning of UNDP support and its contributions to development results in Papua New Guinea from 2003 to 2011. The evaluation found that UNDP contributions have been important in terms of responding to national priorities and government needs. During the period covered by the evaluation, UNDP technical support to the government strengthened institutional development and enhanced policy formulation. Although some of the areas were not key government priorities, UNDP interventions in the areas of MDG planning and monitoring, governance, HIV and AIDS, conflict prevention and recovery, energy and environment and disaster risk management responded to key national needs and priorities. The evaluation also identified a number of areas in which UNDP needs to address specific challenges. These areas include ensuring national ownership and capacity development of all UNDP interventions, following a more systematic approach to programming and enhancing synergies among interventions.

The Assessment recommends that UNDP should have a more holistic approach on macro development issues, such as furthering achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, gender equality, and environment.
