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 Republic of Seychelles gained independence from Britain in 1976 and signed a cooperation agreement with UNDP in 19771. Following independence, the country achieved considerable social and economic gains. It quickly achieved Middle Income Country (MIC) status and became a Net Contributing Country (NCC) to UNDP in 1997. As a result, UNDP’s traditional cooperation and support came largely to an end. However, in the early 2000s, UNDP’s cooperation with Seychelles entered a new era, based entirely on resources mobilized from third parties. Two UNDP country programmes followed, covering respectively 2003-2006 and 2007-2010. This Assessment of Development Results (ADR) evaluates these two programme cycles.
