"This evaluation was initiated by the Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery of UNDP in New York. It examines the work undertaken by the UNDP Support to Security Sector Reform Programme in Albania, which commenced in January 2004. The programme is still running and so this evaluation necessarily had to evaluate an on-going process. Funding difficulties experienced by the programme prompted the evaluation to concentrate on two areas: how to consolidate the gains already made by established projects and how to develop the programme further in order to improve its contribution to communitybased policing in the Republic of Albania.
Subsequent sections of the report examine the objectives and activities of the programme and
provide a detailed analysis of its outcomes. The report presents a series of recommendations that emerge from the findings of the evaluation."
