Parliament of Tonga

Baker conducted an evaluation of the UNDP Governance Strengthening Programme in Nuku’alofa, Tonga in April 2015. The evaluation addressed the multiple aspects of the programme to date, including support for more effective parliamentary procedure, proactive engagement by Parliament of Tongan civil society, and more inclusive and professional operation of parliamentary committees. Baker was contracted by the UNDP to engage interlocutors within Parliament and external stakeholders as part of the assignment, inclusive of international standards for parliamentary support in line with OECD evaluation guidelines.
