Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 1. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS each brought respective comparative strengths to JP (UNDP contributed managerial and implementation components as a development agency as well as in-house technical advice on rule of law reform; whereas EUPOL COPPS was the principal technical advisory partner). Going forward, both partners should continue to cooperate and draw upon each other?s comparative strengths.
2 2. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should focus on supporting the PCP to streamline the Accountability Strategy, Implementation Plan and Code of Conduct going forward as endorsed by the PCP leadership. This will include supporting PCP to develop a curriculum for the Police Academy that incorporates the Code of Conduct with active learning.
3 3. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should support legislative reforms in Palestine to promote accountability of the security services and PCP, including a harmonized draft of the new Law on the Police which takes account of the PCP Code of Conduct.
4 4. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should support much more detailed work on developing SOPs for the PCP accountability units and to clarify the management responsibilities of the various PCP units.
5 5. UNDP should ensure that the training programme for PCP staff developed by Birzeit University is continued. UNDP could do a better job of verifying that the PCP leadership understands the process of donor funding and manage PCP?s expectations regarding the duration of training.
6 6. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should ensure that the results of the survey on citizen?s perceptions of the PCP is widely published in Palestine.
7 7. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should encourage and support the PCP to fully operationalize the complaints procedures and computerized platform developed with JP support.
8 8. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should continue to support the development of the PCP Gender Unit and dialogues on gender equality within the PCP. Assistance providers should continue to support awareness-raising of corruption from a women?s rights perspective in Palestine.
9 9. Developing SOPs and training curricula for the PACC should remain a priority for UNDP and EUPOL COPPS going forward. UNDP should also support PACC to become more focused upon the prevention of corruption in addition to the investigation and enforcement / prosecution of corruption. Regional perspectives should also continue to be brought to the table. Finally, CSOs should be fully included in anti-corruption dialogues and awareness-raising. UNCAC compliance should increasingly serve as the central point around all UNDP support to PACC/ CCC.
10 10. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should encourage and support the CCC to publish all of its decisions and include them on the publically accessible Al Muqtafi website. Additionally, UNDP should support the development of a library at CCC. As regards trainings, UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should ensure that the judges of the CCC are able to select topics that are relevant and urgent to their work. Future trainings should begin to be made self-sustaining by PACC and CCC.
11 11. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS should support legislative analysis and drafting to fully harmonize the provisions of the Anti-Corruption Law with the Palestinian Penal system, including specialized procedures that take account of the Palestinian context.
12 12. Any future engagement with CSOs should be highly focused and require CSOs to demonstrate innovative approaches to accountability and anti-corruption. CSOs should also be supported to fulfil a parallel reporting function with regards to Palestine?s UPR report. CSOs who receive UNDP grants should be required to show their budget allocations.
13 13. UNDP should support ICHR to prepare its UPR report in areas of accountability and anti-corruption.
14 14. The goals of any future project should be properly scaled and capable of being accomplished within the time-frames stated. A monitoring and evaluation plan with clear indicators should be prepared, included as annex to the project document and used as a basis for progress reports.
15 15. The goals of any future project should be properly scaled and capable of being accomplished within the time-frames stated. A monitoring and evaluation plan with clear indicators should be prepared, included as annex to the project document and used as a basis for progress reports.
16 16. UNDP and Donors should consider injecting greater measures of conditionality in a future programme and should not be expected to continue to fund PA institutions unless there is a clear demonstration from the leadership of those institutions of political will and commitment to adopting and incorporating JP deliverables into the official policies and culture of the PA institutions. Co-financing options should also be explored with the PA.
17 17. These recommendations and the UNDP/EUPOL COPPS police accountability/anti corruption programme of work should be modified to take into account any opportunities arising from the changed situation in Gaza and the formation of a unity government, to expand best practices in relation to police accountability and anti-corruption efforts to the Gaza Strip.
1. Recommendation: 1. UNDP and EUPOL COPPS each brought respective comparative strengths to JP (UNDP contributed managerial and implementation components as a development agency as well as in-house technical advice on rule of law reform; whereas EUPOL COPPS was the principal technical advisory partner). Going forward, both partners should continue to cooperate and draw upon each other?s comparative strengths.
Management Response: [Added: 2015/02/05]

UNDP/PAPP supports the evaluation recommendation, and has responded in a number of specific ways in the formulation of its ongoing programming in the areas of police accountability (and broader security sector reform efforts), anticorruption, and civil society engagement, within the overarching framework of UNDP/PAPP?s rule of law assistance in the State of Palestine. These include establishment of a formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with EUPOL COPPS for ongoing work in the sector, reformulation of joint technical working groups with national partners, and planning for roll-out of joint activities.

UNDP/PAPP supports the recommendation, and has committed under its new programming framework to institutionalise the Code of Conduct via human rights-based trainings on the instrument. In the case of the Accountability Strategy and Implementation Plan, this has implications for police development beyond the scope of UNDP/PAPP?s new ROL programme. Particular elements will be addressed by the new UNDP/UN Women programme, while others will be taken forward by the PCP itself with support from other assistance providers.

15. Recommendation: 15. The goals of any future project should be properly scaled and capable of being accomplished within the time-frames stated. A monitoring and evaluation plan with clear indicators should be prepared, included as annex to the project document and used as a basis for progress reports.
Management Response: [Added: 2015/02/05]

UNDP/PAPP supports the recommendation. The Joint Programme, as testified in the evaluation, represented to some degree an inception phase. This work will now be carried forward under a new programming framework in partnership with UN Women and with EUPOL COPPS under the new MOU, taking the innovative UN-EU partnership to a new level over a three year period. This timeframe is considered preferable from all angles and the programme has been carefully planned with and endorsed by some 11 different Palestinian partner institutions. Monitoring and evaluation henceforth comprises a tangible component (Outcome 7) of the programme at activity, output and outcome levels, and UNDP has already worked to enhance its in-house monitoring and evaluation capacities. Moreover, the programme is working to institute better monitoring and evaluation within partner institutions, including in partnership with the national bureau of statistics (the PBCS). Regular report to a donor consortium in parallel with corporate requirements will ensure close oversight of the programme.
