Recommendations
1 UNDP, with its strong partnership with the Government, is in a unique position to galvanize development efforts in Tanzania. UNDP should leverage this strength to continue developing its programmes based on national development needs and on its own mandates.
2 To fully exercise Delivering as One, UNDP should strengthen its engagement with other development partners, including donors and UN agencies.
3 While results of the UNDAP outcomes are collectively reported at UN level, UNDP should also strengthen its internal practice of clearly demonstrating its programme performance and results.
4 Following the favourable results achieved in the internal gender exercise, the country office should continue with gender mainstreaming efforts and ensure full integration of gender equality and women?s empowerment components in all its programmes.
5 For current and future projects, UNDP should work urgently to resolve the key efficiency issues identified in this evaluation and to establish a sustainability plan for projects implemented through the national implementation modality.
