This report on Bulgaria’s Assessment of Development Results (ADR) focuses on the following three thematic areas: fostering democratic governance; achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and reducing poverty under a human development perspective; and ensuring environmental sustainability. Reflecting on the characteristics of Bulgaria’s economic history, its current juncture and prospects, the ADR examined the past with a forward-looking perspective.



Conclusion: Lessons learned

In most cases, the policy-level and institutional results that UNDP has contributed to in Bulgaria emanate from a wide range of operations rather than individual projects. In the job creation area, for instance, UNDP had both demonstration and pilot projects together with a sustained advocacy effort. It is the combination of analytical work such as NHDRs, ‘soft’ advocacy efforts,and concrete job creation schemes that led to the observed change in national policy orientation towards social protection and active labour market policies. Moreover, individual projects may have an influence on several different policy and institutional outcomes. The experiences gained through the BB project, for instance, fed into both social protection and labour market policy, and also national policies and institutional arrangements for decentralization and municipal management.
