Cameroon Country Programme Evaluation

Resource date: 2012

The Evaluation Report presents an independent programme-level evaluation of the UNFPA support to Cameroon covering the fifth Country Programme (2008-2012) conducted by the Evaluation Branch (DOS). The UNFPA country programme was found to be well-aligned with the principles of the UNFPA Strategic Plan as far as disadvantaged and vulnerable groups are concerned; however, support to the development of national capacities demonstrates mixed results, with support for training showing the greatest added value. The CO is highly responsive to demands from partners and to changing priorities and takes advantage of new opportunities. The UNFPA added value as a development partner is high, particularly where UNFPA has acted as a facilitator. There are good indications of tangible effects subsequent to the interventions sponsored or directly funded by UNFPA in the field of reproductive health, in particular, the quality of attention to pregnant and delivering women has improved. However, interventions in reproductive health and gender suffer from a lack of continuity in such areas as sensitization and community-level work. The integration of population and development issues in sectoral policies is poor, lacking consideration of how the use of P&D data at sectoral level affects planning.
