Evaluation of UNDP Strategic Plan and Global and Regional Programme
The report focuses attention on key aspects of UNDPs work under the current strategic plan, and considers the way UNDP, as an essential UN organisation, provides programme support to partner governments. The assessment was carried out during a time of significant restructuring and reorganization at UNDP, designed to strengthen organizational effectiveness and further enhance the contribution of UNDP to development. The evaluation examines the processes and effects of this reorganization through collaborative work undertaken with the UNDP office of Audit and Investigations, and also looks at the results that have been delivered during this challenging period. The UNDP programme portfolio spans about 170 countries and territories, and covers a wide ranging and complex set of issues. The evaluation team was cognizant of the opportunities and challenges such a broad mandate creates.
