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.



UNDP contribution to development results

The 2008–2011 UNDP Country Programme included the following Intermediate Outcome directly related to the MDGs: the “Government of Papua New Guinea efficiently and transparently coordinates international aid, donors and development partners to facilitate the implementation and monitoring of the MTDS/MDGs.” UNDP interventions have been highly relevant, considering the slow progress in terms of MDG achievement, weak governmental capacities for MDG-oriented planning, weak data systems and overall lack of awareness regarding the MDGs.
