Development Impact

UNDP assists partners to achieve sustainable, people-centered development through an integrated approach that links policy with planning and programming, for promoting results based management, instating quality safeguards, monitoring and evaluating impact and equally learning from failures and successes.

Our Goals

UNDP introduces systems, from the project level up, to entrench evaluation, learning and knowledge management in the organization. This is done by being more open, innovative, knowledge and evidence driven. This eventually supports effective development cooperation, South-South and Triangular Cooperation, and higher quality programming and action.more
