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’s contribution to development results

UNDP has contributed to development results in Bosnia and Herzegovina, not only through interventions funded from core funds and from other donors, but also through a range of advisory, advocacy and information-sharing activities. The role of UNDP in making the transition from post-conflict emergency aid to development support was recognized in the 2006 revision of the MTDS: “The UNDP is directed toward the realization of different activities that gradually changed the focus from post-war recovery to questions connected to the strengthening of the capacity for sustainable and long-term socioeconomic development.” The chapter reviews the programme performance in contributing to development results, within the context of national priorities and strategies.
