Assessment of Development Results - Serbia

image of Assessment of Development Results - Serbia

A decade of regional warfare during the 1990s, intervention by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the authoritarian policies of the Milosevic regime left Serbia socially, politically and economically devastated. Serbia became isolated from the international community, and the transition brought a number of costs. The assessment is based on an evaluation of current and past programmes and extensive stakeholder consultations. It provides an analysis of the extent to which United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has positioned itself effectively to identify and respond to national development needs. It also offers an overall assessment of the development results in the areas of post-conflict transition achieved in cooperation with the Government and other development partners.



Management of UNDP assistance

UNDP’s programme strategies from 2001−2005 identified what was to have been accomplished – the results, outcomes and eventual impacts. Their success or effectiveness depended on how they were implemented: that is, management. An assessment of development results would not be complete without looking at the management dimensions of UNDP assistance, which include financial resources to fund programmes and recover implementation costs, human resources, planning and organization, accountability structures, supporting systems and information, monitoring and evaluation. This chapter examines the nature and effectiveness of UNDP management strategies across these various dimensions.
