image of Assessment of Development Results - Equatorial Guinea

The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) conducts country evaluations called “Assessments of Development Results (ADRs)” to capture and demonstrate evaluative evidence of UNDP’s contributions to development results at the country level, as well as the effectiveness of UNDP’s strategy in facilitating and leveraging national effort for achieving development results. This is the first ADR for Equatorial Guinea, and will be conducted in 2016 towards the end of the current UNDP programme cycle of 2013-2017, with a view to contributing to the preparation of UNDP’s new programme starting from 2018, which is guided by the forthcoming United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for Equatorial Guinea starting in the same year.



Conclusions, recommendations and management response

UNDP’s presence and continuity in Equatorial Guinea is justified on observing the country’s Human Development Index, which still reflects the need to tackle significant national challenges related to poverty and inequality. On the other hand, it should be underlined that the population below the poverty threshold does not reach half a million people, while the average income per capita measured in purchasing power parity (PPP) is nearly $30,000; in other words, a higher level than many European countries.
