Final Evaluation of the Republic of Moldova– United Nations Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development (PFSD) 2018–2022
13 April 2022
During June 2021 – January 2022, the UN Country team has conducted the final evaluation of the current UN Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development (PFSD) 2018-2022.
The PFSD guides the work of the United Nations in the country. In line with its Theory of Change, the PFSD document is framed around four priority areas:
Governance, human rights and gender equality
Sustainable, inclusive and equitable economic growth
Environmental sustainability and resilience and
Inclusive and equitable social development.
The evaluation was designed and conducted to support greater learning about what works, what does not work and why in the context of the PFSD. It examined the progress made in the implementation of the PFSD between 2018 and 2020 and has also assessed the joint contributions of UN agencies towards national priorities and the SDGs.
A participatory approach was used to collect data and formulate recommendations and lessons learned, with the participation of a wide range of stakeholders. These were stylized to inform the elaboration of the next cooperation framework (CF). Overall, the views of approximately 150 people – including members of the UNCT, United Nations staff, government officials, development partners and representatives of human rights institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector – were captured in the evaluation process.
