IEO and UNDP carried out an ‘Evaluation of the UNDP Strategic Plan, Global Programme, and Regional Programmes (2014-17)’ with the purpose of strengthening UNDP accountability to global and national development partners, supporting the development of the next Strategic Plan, and supporting organizational learning. The evaluation was designed to inform both internal and external stakeholders of how UNDP is addressing development challenges. The evaluation assessed the outcomes of the Strategic Plan, and the implementation of global, regional and country-level programming, to ascertain whether UNDP is making progress in achieving its stated goals, and whether the Strategic Plan, Global Programme, and Regional Programmes are serving as effective tools for organizing and guiding UNDP programming and activities.

Conclusions and recommendations

The Strategic Plan period has been challenging for UNDP on multiple fronts. The period entailed restructuring of the organization and significant cuts in funding for international cooperation in general and UNDP in particular. In key areas of UNDP’s programmes, funding has been reduced at both corporate and country levels. The institutional reorganization also impacted programme delivery, given the significant scaling down in staff positions. The evaluation took these factors into consideration while assessing UNDP’s role and contribution.
