Welcome to the Reflection Series 2021 Edition!
This is a space for engagement on “what works” (or doesn’t work) in UNDP programming, using the Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) Reflections papers as a starting point. The papers offer lessons from evaluations across five of UNDP’s signature solutions: poverty, energy, environment, gender and governance, through a series of 12 short papers. IEO will be hosting regular webinars, followed by offline discussions on the different papers.
This space is primarily for UNDP staff at the country offices, Regional Bureaus and the HQ engaged in policy and programme design, and programme implementation. But it may be useful for all development practitioners.
This space will promote organizational learning and improved decision-making through discussions on the lessons identified in the paper, their applicability to different settings, and the utility of the Reflections series overall for programme design and adaptation. The space will also garner insights for upcoming thematic evaluations.
