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.




The Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducts independent evaluations of UNDP contributions to development results through its country programmes. These evaluations are titled Assessment of Development Results (ADR). An ADR evaluates the relevance and strategic positioning of UNDP support and contributions to a country’s development over a specified period of time. The purpose of the ADR is to generate lessons for future country-level programming and to contribute to the organization’s effectiveness and substantive accountability. This report presents the findings and recommendations of an ADR that was conducted in Bosnia and Herzegovina with a scope covering the period of two country cooperation frameworks (2001–2008). More specifically, the ADR provides forward-looking recommendations to assist the UNDP country office and its partners in formulating an action plan for the next programming cycle (2010–2014).
