Assessment of Development Results - Lao PDR (Second Assessment)

image of Assessment of Development Results - Lao PDR (Second Assessment)

This independent Assessment of Development Results in Lao PDR, conducted by the Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is part of a series of country-level evaluations. The evaluation examined the UNDP contribution to Lao PDR’s development from 2007 to 2010 and provides forward-looking recommendations that are useful for the formulation of the new UNDP country programme in Lao PDR.



UNDP’s strategic positioning

UNDP has an exceptionally high-profile presence in Lao PDR, far disproportionate to its direct financial contribution. This is also true for the UNCT in general and the UN Resident Coordinator in particular. From meetings with government officials, development partners, and civil society organizations, it was evident to the evaluation team that UNDP is highly valued and trusted by the Government of Lao PDR – perhaps more so than any other development partner. UNDP’s pre-eminence among Lao PDR’s development partners is a testament to its success in making itself strategically highly relevant to the government through various programmes and other activities.
