The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers the period from 1997 to 2003. The evaluation found UNDP has performed a creditable job in tapping some of the most strategic opportunities for assistance to Viet Nam. UNDP has managed to stay in step with the emergence of major development concerns in the country and has been a “first mover” in areas which have gained increasing attention on the part of other development partners. UNDP’s long presence in Vietnam has enabled it to establish a close relationship of trust with the government, to acquire deep knowledge of the country, and to make substantial contributions to key developments. The evaluation suggested UNDP support would be more effective if there were a more compact programme portfolio focused on targeted areas. It further highlighted that maintaining a strategic position with increased leverage will depend on preserving the web of partnerships woven around the role played by UNDP.
