Appraising the intervention strategies under the CAP: experiences and outlook




‘Appraising intervention strategies under the CAP: experiences and outlook’

 15 - 16 October 2019
Rome, Italy

The ENRD Evaluation Helpdesk is pleased to invite you to the Good Practice Workshop, ‘Appraising intervention strategies under the CAP: experiences and outlook’. The workshop will take place on 15-16 October 2019 in Rome, Italy.

Member States are currently in the process of preparing their CAP Strategic Plans. Its elaboration requires for each CAP Specific Objective to design the interventions following a sound intervention logic, supported by the ex ante evaluation, the SWOT analysis and the assessment of needs. The ex ante evaluation is an integral part of this process and plays an important role in improving the quality of the design of the CAP Strategic Plans.

The intervention strategy is the core of the CAP Strategic Plan and combines the interventions, their expected outputs and results, the setting of targets and milestones for these results and the allocation of financial resources to the interventions. All of the elements of the intervention strategy should be justified based on the assessment of needs and the experiences gained through the implementation of the funds.


The overarching aim of this Good Practice Workshop is to raise awareness for evidence-based policy making by showing practical examples of how to approach and use the ex ante evaluation. This workshop focuses on the appraisal of the intervention strategy and target setting and serves to:

  • Provide a forum to discuss and learn lessons from the appraisal of the intervention logic and target setting in the current programming period 2014–2020.
  • Exchange on principles and practical examples of appraising the intervention strategies currently under preparation for the CAP Strategic Plans 2021-2027.
  • Identify challenges, needs and solutions to help Managing Authorities and evaluators in their ex ante evaluation activities.

Target Audience:

Managing Authorities, departments dealing with programming, evaluators and National Rural Network representatives. We encourage stakeholders who are involved not only in evaluation but also programming to participate in this event.
