About the product
This evaluation assessed the performance, results and strategic positioning of UNDP’s Regional Programme for Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, 2006-2010. The evaluation found that the programme in general, and the RBEC Regional Service Centre in Bratislava in particular, are extremely important for fulfilling the RBEC mission in the region. But it also noted that the combination of projects, activities and services implemented by the regional programme is beyond what is traditionally called a “programme”. The evaluation team recognized that the Bratislava Regional Centre has a strong capacity and in-depth expertise in most UNDP priority areas and is a unique source of knowledge and advice for the country offices. It also noted that the programme is being implemented in a fast changing region and in the complex environment of implementing the UNDP regionalization policy.
