Assessment of Development Results - Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Assessment of Development Results (ADR) in Bosnia and Herzegovina covered the period from 2001-2008 and offers lessons that can strengthen UNDP programming in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as contributing to the organization’s effectiveness and accountability. The evaluation found that in the context of transition, UNDP quickly established itself as a capable and reliable implementing agency for the government as well as donors. In particular, UNDP has contributed to policy development and dialogue, including the incorporation of pro-poor concerns and the Millennium Development Goals into the national development strategy; national human development reports and strategic research on key issues have also been important in informing policy. Other UNDP-supported initiatives, in human security, governance and social protection, have contributed to capacity development at various levels of government.




UNDP started work in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in early 1996, a few months after the Dayton Peace Agreement was signed. The UNDP country office in BiH initially focused on supporting emergency aid locally, but rapidly expanded its efforts to address the post-conflict transition from emergency rehabilitation to development. It is now reaching the end of its third country programme (2005-2009), and the next UN Development Assistance Framework is under preparation by the UN Country Team.
