Assessment of Development Results - Seychelles

The ADR in Seychelles examines the relevance and strategic positioning of UNDP support and contributions to the country’s development from 2003 to 2009. It assesses UNDP interventions under the various thematic areas of the country programme with the aim of providing forward-looking recommendations meant to assist the UNDP country office and its partners in the formulation of the forthcoming country programme. The evaluation found that the UNDP support has generally been well aligned to national policies and plans and has responded to priorities and needs in the environment and governance sectors. UNDP has been successful in mobilizing large amounts of funding to national environmental priority issues. This creates a real possibility of protecting the country’s critical natural resources base.



The UN and UNDP in the country

At the outset of the period under review, Seychelles had recently acceded to NCC status. As a result, UN cooperation programmes were being scaled down significantly. Due to ongoing foreign exchange constraints, moreover, Seychelles was unable to meet all its financial obligations to UN agencies. Accordingly, the level of UN assistance and representation in the country has been low throughout the period. Apart from UNDP, the only UN organizations represented are WHO and FAO. WHO is represented by one full-time liaison officer; FAO has a national correspondent, a government officer who fulfils this as one of many mandates.
