Evaluation of UNDP Contribution to Strengthening National Capacities

Eval_NationalCapacities.pdf (application/pdf Object).

As countries take ownership of the development agenda, enhancing sustained abilities for countries to do things for themselves takes centre stage as a critical element of development effectiveness. For UNDP, capacity development is the “how” of what it does and UNDP has put in extraordinary resources in its conceptualization and activities.

The evaluation finds that although there is room for strengthening UNDP’s work on capacity development to align it more strongly with nationally driven development, given its track record, UNDP is well positioned to play a lead and transformative role in the important area of enhancing national capacity.
