Evaluation of Country Programme Support to UNFPA, UNICEF and UN Women

Final report


Sweden provides long-term unearmarked support to the country programmes of some UN organisations. It is known as country programme support (CPS). This evaluation sought to expand the knowledge of the modality by studying six UN country offices currently receiving CPS. The evaluation examined changes in organisational behaviours, inter-organisational relations, and the Sweden-UN strategic partnership. It found that the flexible, long-term nature of CPS enhanced effectiveness and efficiency within the UN organisations. It concludes that CPS is adding value to the implementation of country programmes/strategic notes and Sweden’s strategy, but there is potential to use CPS more effectively. The evaluation recommends guidance for more structured dialogue between Swedish embassies and the UN organisations. It also recommends that the UN organisations improve their narrative and financial reporting, introduce adaptive resultsbased management, and monitor the development of CPS for learning. Other development partners should be encouraged to provide CPS. The partners should also seize the opportunity to use the modality to promote UN reform and Delivering as One.
