Legal Empowerment Partnership Project: (LEPP 2009-2010), An Independent Evaluation Report

UNDP Thailand received a US $200,000 grant from the Democratic Governance Thematic Trust Fund (DGTTF) for a project on Legal Empowerment of the Poor (LEP), at regional, national and local levels. DGTTF aims to support innovative and catalytic programmes to strengthen democratic governance and to address issues in politically sensitive areas.

This independent Final Project Evaluation is intended to strengthen the DGTTF’s role in supporting innovation in democratic governance by codifying, analyzing and sharing lessons from past experiences to enhance regional and global interventions. The objective of the Evaluation is to assess the results of the UNDP Legal Empowerment Partnership Project (LEPP). Specifically, the Evaluation focuses on identifying, analyzing and documenting the results and impact of the project, as well as lessons learned, and tools and instruments used to achieve the expected results. It includes an assessment of the sustainability of innovative activities and the potential for further upscaling or replication.  It is hoped that the consolidation of lessons learned and analysis of results will contribute to the identification of regional programming options, as well as the fostering of knowledge management.

The resource contains a list of questions that the report aimed to answer.  It concludes that notwithstanding limitations to both the study and the LEPP’s outcomes, the LEPP  has been highly relevant and suited to the priorities and policies of DGTTF, UNDP and its counterparts in Thailand and participating countries in Asia  The resource contains an evaluation of achievements, shortcomings and contains recommendations.
