Following the previous Regional Programme Evaluation for Africa conducted by the Evaluation Office in 2007 for the period 2002-2006, the present evaluation intended to examine the Regional Programme for the current programme period 2008-2013.



Strategic positioning of UNDP in the region

This chapter will examine the strategic positioning of the regional programme, looking first at the roles expected of a regional programme, and how well the programme for Africa has fulfilled these different roles with respect to thought leadership and knowledge management, technical and advisory support, and implementation of initiatives best undertaken at the regional level such as support to regional institutions. The chapter also examines the responsiveness of the regional programme to emerging issues and its engagement with regional institutions, and assesses the extent to which UNDP has used its comparative advantages to create partnerships for results. The final section examines cross-cutting issues – gender equality and women’s empowerment, capacity development, and South-South cooperation – which are intimately linked to UNDP’s comparative advantage as a development partner.
