About the product
This report presents the findings of the Assessment of Development Results (ADR), the Mozambique country evaluation conducted by the Evaluation Office (EO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2004. ADRs are independent forward-looking evaluations that assess the strategic positioning of UNDP’s support and its contributions to a country’s development in a given period of time. The emphasis is on generating lessons to promote organizational learning to enhance UNDP’s performance and
increase its contribution to development effectiveness.Since the 1992 peace accords that ended the civil war, Mozambique has achieved remarkable success on a number of fronts. It has successfully navigated the transition from peace to war and sustained political stability while transforming its political system to a multi-party democracy. Mozambique has also been able to maintain steady economic growth rates averaging 6 percent to 7 percent a year over the past several years. These are encouraging results. But
Mozambique is still a least developing country (LDC) that faces considerable economic and human development challenges, and the role and contributions of external partners remain important.
