Assessment of Development Results - Zambia

image of Assessment of Development Results - Zambia

This report states that UNDP Zambia has in general been effective in its contributions to development in Zambia. However, programme resources were spread too thinly across many initiatives and insufficient attention was given to ensuring sustainability. While cooperating partners and non-governmental organizations would have preferred UNDP to play a stronger role in advocacy, the Government appreciates UNDP as a consistent partner. The evaluation suggests that, within the context of the United Nations country team, UNDP missed opportunities to develop more joint initiatives.



UNDP’s response and strategies

The UN supports the Zambian national strategy through the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). The UNDAF is prepared for five years at a time and defines the UN’s role in the country. The first Zambian UNDAF covered the period 2002 to 2006, after which the present UNDAF took over, covering the period 2007 to 2010. The UNDAF process supports and is being synchronized with the preparation of the Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP), which is to cover the period 2011 to 2015.
