Assessment of Development Results: Yemen


The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) covers the period from 1997 to 2004. The evaluation found that UNDP has been responsive to national priorities and has established the trust, respect and neutrality vis-à-vis the government and civil society groups of Yemen. Important results have been experienced across UNDP country programme areas, including the establishment of a human rights ministry, successful support to the election process, a strong mine action programme, important strides in decentralization and local governance, coordination of the PRSP process, local poverty alleviation through community involvement and income-generation activities, and key initiatives in water and natural resource management as well as environmental protection. The evaluation concluded that for UNDP to capitalize further on these achievements it will be important to reassess its strategic positioning and its focus.
