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.

The Independent Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducted a country level evaluation, an Assessment of Development Results (ADR) in Sierra Leone in 2013. It examined the Sierra Leone country programme over the 2008-2012. The ADR is an independent evaluation aimed at capturing and demonstrating evaluative evidence of UNDP’s contribution to development results and its strategic positioning in the country. This is the first ADR conducted in Sierra Leone, which was carried out with support of the Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL), various other national stakeholders, and the UNDP Sierra Leone country office and Regional Bureau of Africa (RBA).

  • Foreword
    It gives me great pleasure to present the Assessment of Development Results (ADR) in the Republic of Sierra Leone. This is the first ADR assessment of UNDP’s contribution to Sierra Leone and covers the period 2008-2012. Specifically, the ADR focused on the previous 2008-2010 Country Programme Document (CPD) (which was extended by the UNDP Executive Board until 2012), and covered as much as possible of the ongoing 2013-2014 CPD. The findings and recommendations of the ADR were discussed at a stakeholder workshop held in Freetown on 8 July 2014 attended by almost 70 stakeholders who shared their comments on the report and provided feedback on the role and future potential contribution of UNDP in the context of the next country programme.

  • Development challenges and national strategies
    This chapter provides a brief overview of the country context in which UNDP operated in Sierra Leone in terms of political context, United Nations mandates and milestones, government systems and subnational governance and decentralization reforms. It summarizes the key development challenges faced by Sierra Leone over the period being examined, in the sectors of security, justice, human rights, human development and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and development cooperation, and the national response in terms of strategies, policies and priorities.
  • UNDP's response and strategy
    This chapter provides details of the national planning context within which UNDP has developed its programmes. It contains a summary of the key elements of integration in terms of the national Joint Vision, Poverty Reduction Strategy and the UNDP country programme outcomes in relation to the scope of the ADR. It then describes the features of the UNDP country programmes, programme expenditure and management arrangements and the coordination between UNDP and the UN system during the review period.
  • UNDP's contribution to development results
    This chapter contains an assessment framed by the six major outcome areas as adapted for the ADR assessment process covering the period 2008-2012. The assessment of each outcome area begins with an analysis of national context and strategy and then presents UNDP’s strategy to support these national efforts to contribute to the achievement of the outcomes. Specific programmatic and project interventions are then identified together with an assessment by the evaluation criteria of relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the outcome level. Finally, for each outcome area, relevant factors that explain the level of performance are identified.
  • UNDP's strategic positioning
    This chapter presents a brief analysis of the programme in Sierra Leone in terms of its strategic position, relevance and also responsiveness to the promotion of key UN values, namely gender mainstreaming, use of networks and South-South cooperation.
  • Conclusions and recommendations
    The broader, programme-level conclusions and recommendations presented here are based on the detailed outcome level analysis and assessment contained in the previous chapters. These conclusions and recommendations have been framed to take into consideration the fact that as of March 2014, Sierra Leone enters a new post peacekeeping/building phase and UNDP Sierra Leone has an opportunity to strengthen its strategic position and enhance the coherence and quality of its new programme.
