Comments :
UNDP Costa Rica has experimented substantial changes in the last decade, mostly as a result of changing patterns of development cooperation and national policies related with cooperation entities. In the 2008-2012 Country Program Document, the strategy of the office is centered on providing high level substantive support to the Government of Costa Rica. In 2010 UNDP CR is half way through the current cooperation cycle and it is of high priority to the office to analyze the results of the first two years as foreseen in the Country Program Action Plan. The CPAP Evaluation Plan foresees an evaluation to be conducted after two years, in coordination with the new administration (2010-2014. The evaluation will be carried out during the first quarter of 2011. Initially it was scheduled for November 2010, but it was only in December that the Chinchilla Administration launched it National Development Plan for 2011-2014. Additional to the above mentioned objectives, the evaluation process seeks to inform the elaboration of specific monitoring and evaluation plans from all Program Officers and to regularize Country Office monitoring and evaluation processes. Efforts are being conducted to coordinate the evaluation processes with the UNCT, particularly with the Excom Agencies. UNDAF annual reviews are being considered and a methodology is under design for the UNDAF evaluation to take place during the first semester of 2011.
