This independent evaluation of the role of UNDP inthe NCCs of the Arab regionwas commissioned by the Evaluation Office of UNDP. Its focus is on learning and the future role of UNDP among the group of countries. The key objective is to assess UNDP activities and programmes in the Arab region NCCs in terms of addressing the development challenges of the countries and support their aspirations; and the implications of this experience for UNDP corporate policies and practices that relate to NCCs, as well as for its future activities in those NCCs. This evaluation is relevant and important in the context of the growing number of middle-income countries that will graduate to NCC status in the coming years.
