Evaluation Report of UNPOG

April 25, 2015

After almost nine years of serving UN Member States, the first phase of the United Nations Project Office on Governance (UNPOG) project is coming to an end and there is a need to carry out an end-of-term evaluation to assess the impact of its activities on Member States. In addition to taking stock of the progress made to date, the evaluation is intended to serve as a bridge between current work and future mandates to ensure that UNPOG can better serve UN Member States, particularly developing and least developed countries in the Asia-Pacific region, in advancing the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Since there is increasing awareness of the fact that good governance is very important for the promotion of sustainable development goals, recommendations to further enhance UNPOG’s capacity-building activities in this area and ensure high terms of development would be very useful. 

In order to achieve the above objectives, the evaluation was conducted to assess:

a) degree of attainment of the goals of UNPOG vis-à-vis the activities implemented since its inception, taking into consideration the activities directly carried out by UNPOG or in collaboration with other international organizations and partners;
b) overall impact on governance capacity building for UN Member States, particularly in the Asia and Pacific region;
c) relevance and adequacy of the capacity development work related to project stakeholders;
d) effectiveness of the project governance arrangement, partnerships and implementation modality;
e) results achieved vis-a-vis the available budget, from both qualitative and quantitative perspectives; 
f) facilitating and constraining factors of the project; and
g) focusing on in-depth analysis of the last 2 years 2013-2014 and conduct descriptive review of the first 6 years of UNPOG. 

A few recommendations and lessons learned were also identified through the evaluation to reinforce the future avenues of action of UNPOG.
