Hide / Show Abstract

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.

  • UNDP response and strategies

    UNDP’s evolving strategy. During the late 1990s, UNDP positioned itself as a key player in coordinating aid to Ghana. UNDP’s coordination role was most evident in the thematic group on governance where the organization served as the secretariat. UNDP’s strategy was to pilot initiatives for decentralized development, focusing most of its efforts at the district level, with limited linkage to ‘upstream’ policy.

    The objective of this evaluation is to analyse how UNDP positioned itself in Ghana to add value to the country’s development efforts, and to identify progress towards development.
