Country Programme Evaluation
Commissioning Unit: Mozambique
Evaluation Plan: 2010-2011
Evaluation Type: UNDAF
Completion Date: 12/2010
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Mozambique
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation: It is recommended to establish a working group, composed of both international and national senior staff, to document the process and provide continuity from one UNDAF to the next as well as provide critical input to the MTR and final evaluations.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

UNDP CP will be part of the next UNDAF and UNDP CO staff will be involved in the teams that will plan the next cycle.

Key Actions:

2. Recommendation: There is a need for continuous policy dialogue at all levels, to ensure that government planning to which the UN is so closely aligned take into account all UN principles and objectives. In addition, it is also necessary to more closely align UNDAF outcomes and outputs to the development priorities identified by civil society.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

UNDP will advocate to take into consideration this recommendation during the next UNDAF planning phase.

Key Actions:

3. Recommendation: Firstly, to address the lack of expertise or staff time to backstop and monitor cross-cutting issues and gender equality in particular, the evaluation team suggests that all joint initiatives appoint Focal Points (one or several depending on the nature and number of pertinent cross-cutting issues).
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

The CO already appointed a focal point for the cross-cutting issues.

Key Actions:

4. Recommendation: Secondly, considering the lack of accountability mechanism for cross-cutting issues, it is suggested, following the example of Joint Reviews, to develop a ficha tecnica for each UNDAF outcome that requires agencies to identify what are relevant cross-cutting concerns (gender, HIV, environment, etc).
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

Agreed.

Key Actions:

5. Recommendation: Thirdly, with specific reference to gender equality, it is advisable to support gender mainstreaming across all UNDAF components through an internal coordination mechanism whose primary functions would be to consolidate the UN position vis-à-vis national partners and other donors, to advise the UNCT and PMT on emerging gender issues and develop a UN wide strategy for gender mainstreaming.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

UNDP will cooperate with other UN Agencies to comply with this recommendation.

Key Actions:

6. Recommendation: The UN?s comparative advantages form the basis for UNDAF outcomes, outputs and joint activities. There is a need for the UN to pilot innovative forms of capacity development, both targeted at institutional partners and community-based beneficiaries.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

UNDP CO will take this recommendation into consideration during the next planning phases.

Key Actions:

7. Recommendation: Although UNDAF includes a focus on strengthening the capacity of CSO to monitor public policy, this was weak and it is recommended that the future UNDAF place greater emphasis on it by mainstreaming the capacity development of CSO in all joint activities.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

Agreed.

Key Actions:

8. Recommendation: In order to be an effective mechanism for coordination and partnership, the Joint Programme design process needs to be more coherent to ensure that the whole programme is more than the sum of the parts contributed by individual agencies. In that sense it is recommended that each joint initiative be required to carry out a mandatory SWOT analysis and mapping exercise to identify the agencies´ comparative advantages.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

UNDP will cooperate with other UN Agencies to comply with this recommendation.

Key Actions:

9. Recommendation: To ensure appropriate reporting on the impact of future UNDAFs on the country?s development, urgent action is required from the agencies´ headquarters or RCO to negotiate appropriate reporting formats that require a systematic impact analysis. These formats can be negotiated at HQ level, thus ensuring that all countries use similar formats, or they can be agreed upon through consensus among the agencies at country level.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

Agreed.

Key Actions:

10. Recommendation: At implementation level, there is a need to better plan, and to report on activities in terms of specific targets and indicators, thus providing additional information with which to monitor progress. That can be done in several complementary ways: by recruiting coordinators for all joint interventions and by improving planning and monitoring tools.
Management Response: [Added: 2014/04/09]

UNDP CO will take this recommendation into consideration for the next cycle.
