About the book
The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) conducts country evaluations called “Independent Country Programme Evaluations (ICPEs)” to capture and demonstrate evaluative evidence of UNDP’s contributions to development results at the country level, as well as the effectiveness of UNDP’s strategy in facilitating and leveraging national effort for achieving development results. This is the second ICPE for the Philippines conducted in 2017, towards the end of the current UNDP programme cycle of 2012-2018. The first ICPE for the Philippines was conducted in 2009. The current evaluation results are expected to feed into the development of the new country programme.
