This report presents an independent country-level evaluation conducted by the UNDP Evaluation Office in 2010. The evaluation examines the strategic relevance and positioning of UNDP support, and its contribution to the development of Moldova.



Strategic positioning

Since 2007, UNDP has been a key development partner and the main United Nations agency supporting the Government’s public administration reform agenda. The Government has been in difficult transition with at least one electoral exercise every year between 2007 and 2011 and the parliamentary elections since 2009 have failed to secure the nation’s president, creating continued political uncertainty. Managing relevant, credible and effective programme delivery during a complex and difficult political transition period of the country is an almost impossible task. During this entire period, UNDP-supported pubic administration reform has remained relevant and stayed the course, despite frequent changes in government, largely because of the careful selection and targeting of the reforms, the modernization agenda, the consultation with all stakeholders and importantly the strategic thought process that went into the design of the public administration reform programme. The reforms were closely aligned to the Government’s plans and priorities. The experience of managing the UNDP-supported reforms gave the much-needed experience and confidence to Government to advance ambitiously towards the reforms required as part of EU integration procedures.
