Independent Country Programme Evaluation ARMENIA
May 20, 2020
The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducts 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 assess the effectiveness of UNDP’s strategy in facilitating and leveraging national efforts for achieving development results. ICPEs are independent evaluations carried out within the overall provisions contained in the UNDP Evaluation Policy.
This ICPE is the second evaluation of UNDP’s work in Armenia. It covers the period from 2016 to 2018, in accordance with the evaluation’s terms of reference. The ICPE assessed the entirety of UNDP’s activities in the country, whether funded by core UNDP resources, donor funds, or Government funds. It also considered UNDP’s contribution to the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) and assessed UNDP’s role as a catalyst and convenor working with other development partners, civil society, and the private sector.
The ICPE was timed to feed into the preparation of the next country programme document (CPD), which will be implemented from 2021. Primary audiences for the evaluation are the UNDP Armenia country office (CO), the Regional Bureau for Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (RBEC), the UNDP Executive Board, and the Government of Armenia.
