Assessment of Development Results - Islamic Republic of Afghanistan

image of Assessment of Development Results - Islamic Republic of Afghanistan

This report presents an independent evaluation managed by the Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Afghanistan between 2002 and 2008. It assesses UNDP’s overall contribution to the development of the country over the most recent programming cycles, as well as the strategy and performance of UNDP-Afghanistan during the last programme cycles and their action plans.



Context and development results

Since the Bonn Agreement of 2002, Afghanistan has gone through a period of hope and positive expectation that reached its peak following the Presidential and Parliamentary elections in 2005. The peace process can demonstrate numerous successes: the creation of a transitional government, the holding of Presidential and Parliamentary elections, the disarmament and reintegration of troops, the disbandment of many illegally armed groups, early elements of civil service reform, strengthening of key institutions of the justice sector, and reform of the police. UNDP has played an important part in each. Yet each has been flawed, albeit to varying degrees. Each has also been pursued by the international community as a practical checklist of accomplishments that fails to allow time and resources to ensure the substantive nature of these achievements. This has resulted in shortcomings.
