About the product
This report presents an independent evaluation managed by the Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Niger in 2012. It assesses UNDP’s overall contribution to the development of the country over the two most recent programming cycles (2004-2008 and 2009-2013), as well as the strategy and performance of UNDP-Niger during the last two programme cycles and their action plans. This ADR is the first conducted in Niger, in collaboration with the Government of Niger with a view to strengthening the ownership of the evaluation results by national partners, and thereby its credibility and utility. Its objectives are to: (i) identify progress made toward achieving the desired results for the programming cycles concerned; (ii) analyze how UNDP in Niger has positioned itself in order to provide added value to the country's own development efforts; and (iii) present conclusions and recommendations that will feed into new programming frameworks for UNDP in the country, and in particular the next Country Programme.
