The Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducted an independent Evaluation of UNDP’s fourth Global Programme in 2012. The evaluation covered the period 2009–2013. Global Programme was designed to strengthen the UNDP development cooperation role at the country, regional and global levels through supporting the analysis of development problems and providing context-specific development solutions.



Global programme strategy

The global economic crisis, the uprising in the Arab States region, and responding to conflict-affected countries made the already complex policy template defined by the UNDP Strategic Plan even more challenging for the Global Programme. The programme had the mandate of facilitating to ensure that the increasing demand for UNDP support—in areas such as strengthening democratic institutions, addressing transition needs and promoting equality, social protection and inclusion is better met. Providing effective support to middle-income countries was no longer a necessity that related to only one or two regions. Given the conflicting priorities, there is a considerable ‘unfinished agenda’ in several areas, and rapid progress is essential to enable the Global Programme to be fully relevant to all regions and country types.
