The Evaluation of the Contribution of UNDP Global and Regional Human Development Reports (HDRs) to the Public Policy Process is an independent thematic evaluation conducted by the Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2014. It assesses the contribution of global and regional HDRs to public policy and policy discourse from 2004 to 2013. This is the first independent evaluation of the global and regional HDRs, so the evaluation also considers the way that HDRs progressed from 1990 to 2003. UNDP’s Executive Board approved this evaluation, taking particular note of the HDRs’ important advocacy role in promoting the human development perspective in development policy and planning. In addition to accountability and learning objectives, the evaluation focuses attention on the public policy and pedagogical value of these flagship UNDP knowledge products

Contribution of regional HDRs to public policy

According to the regional programme framework, the regional HDRs seek to catalyse public discourse and policy processes through research and data compiled on topics that have policy relevance and to spur action on policy areas that are relevant for human development at the regional and national levels. The reports seek to create a space for countries to deliberate common ground on issues of larger interest and crosscountry in nature. These goals imply that a range of regional- and national-level actors engaged in public policy process will use the regional HDRs. This chapter analyses the extent to which the regional HDRs accomplished these goals.
