The evaluation recommended that it is important for UNDP Guyana to continue to reorient its programming towards higher-level policy analysis in order to support the country’s transition to a middle-income status. Also, UNDP needs to focus on its comparative advantage, and help Guyana explore alternative sources of support through South-South, regional and public-private partnerships.




This is an independent country-level evaluation called the Assessment of Development Results (ADR) conducted in Guyana by the Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). This evaluation examined the relevance and strategic positioning of UNDP support and its contributions to the country’s development from 2001 to 2010. It assessed UNDP Guyana’s interventions under the four thematic areas of the country programme (poverty reduction, democratic governance, environment and energy, and disaster recovery and risk reduction), with an intention to provide forward-looking recommendations that are useful for the formulation of the new UNDP country programme in Guyana. The ADR process benefited from a participatory stakeholder workshop held in April 2010 in Guyana. The workshop was attended by approximately 60 national participants, including key senior government officials and high-level representatives from civil society, political parties, the UN system and bilateral donors.
