The evaluation examines the strategic relevance and positioning of UNDP support and its contributions to development results in Papua New Guinea from 2003 to 2011. During the period covered by the evaluation, UNDP technical support to the government strengthened institutional development and enhanced policy formulation. Although some of the areas were not key government priorities, UNDP interventions in the areas of MDG planning and monitoring, governance, HIV and AIDS, conflict prevention and recovery, energy and environment and disaster risk management responded to key national needs and priorities. It identified a number of areas in which UNDP needs to address specific challenges, which include ensuring national ownership and capacity development of all UNDP interventions, following a more systematic approach to programming and enhancing synergies among interventions.
