Assessment of Development Results - Cambodia

image of Assessment of Development Results - Cambodia

This independent country-level evaluation examines the relevance and strategic positioning of UNDP support and its contributions to the country’s development from 2001 to 2009. It suggests UNDP Cambodia to refocus programme activities to the people of Cambodia: UNDP should promote the use of democratic system and local governance structure it has helped to establish, and encourage the participation of people in democratic decision making; it should bring in a sharper poverty focus in its assistance to economic policy making; and it should address environmental concerns through making clear linkages with sustainable livelihood concerns of local population. The finding of the report is a reminder that, as successful as its Cambodia programme has been, UNDP needs to constantly readjust itself to line up with its mandate to help countries accelerate human development and aim for real improvements in people’s lives.



Strategic positioning of UNDP

UNDP strategic positioning in Cambodia was analysed in terms of four criteria: the strategic relevance of UNDP activities in the light of development challenges faced by Cambodia; the quality of UNDP responsiveness to Cambodia’s changing development needs; the contribution that UNDP (and the UN system in general) makes to the propagation and inculcation of wider UN values in Cambodia; and UNDP success in forging strategic partnerships with various actors in the development arena—multilateral and bilateral development agencies, national and international NGOs, the private sector and civil society—while assisting RGC in achieving its development goals.
