This series assesses the attainment of intended and achieved results as well as United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) contributions to development results at the country level. Their scope include, but is not confined to, UNDP responsiveness and alignment to country challenges and priorities; strategic positioning; use of comparative advantage; and engagement with partners. The number and selection of countries, and the timing of these evaluations, are determined to ensure coverage and to allow findings and recommendations to feed into the preparation of the subsequent programme. Wherever possible, these evaluations will be conducted in conjunction with other United Nations organizations.

  • Introduction
    The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducted an Assessment of Development Results (ADR) in Armenia in 2014. An ADR is an independent country-level evaluation aimed at measuring UNDP’s contribution to development results and its strategic positioning in the country. This introductory chapter presents the purpose and scope of the evaluation, and an overview of the structure of the report.
  • Development challenges and national strategies
    This chapter describes the country context and the national development challenges of Armenia from a human development perspective. Its aim is to help readers understand, in subsequent chapters, why UNDP has taken certain strategic positions and implemented certain programmes in the light of the development challenges of the country. It also explains how UNDP’s strategic position has related to the Government’s development strategies and overall external assistance and whether UNDP’s strategic position and programmes have actually addressed Armenia’s development challenges. The country’s development context and status thus become an important benchmark against which UNDP’s strategic positioning and development results are mapped.
  • UNDP's response and strategies
    This chapter provides an overview of UNDP’s programmes during the 2005-2009 and 2010-2015 cycles, and explains the UN’s strategy on development assistance as well as UNDP’s response.
  • UNDP's contribution to development results
    This chapter presents the assessment of UNDP’s contribution to development results in each of the four programme areas: poverty reduction, democratic governance, environment and sustainable development, and disaster and crisis prevention and recovery. Contributions will be assessed against four criteria: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability.
  • Strategic position of UNDP
    UNDP’s strategic positioning is assessed in this chapter according to three dimensions: (i) strategic relevance and responsiveness; (ii) making the most of comparative strengths; and (iii) promoting UN values from a human development perspective. These three dimensions are related and together allow an assessment of UNDP’s overall strategic position in the country.
