In this report a screening of the agri-environment and climate measures of six European countries or regions: the Netherlands, Wallonia (Belgium), Lower Saxony (Germany), Nord-Pas de Calais (France), Scotland (United Kingdom) and Denmark. The rural development programme available is used for each Member State as a basis. Measures that pursue purely nature objectives are not taken into consideration.

The evaluation aims to obtaining an economic assessment of the activities and development opportunities for small and medium sized farms in Latvia, including direct payments and RDP contributions. It provides the analyis of the support conditions in the RDP measures and proposals for the development of these farms.

The performance assessment focused on the impact of the Mainland Finland RDP on the development of competitiveness of the agricultural sector. The main RDP tools for improving competitiveness are the measures relating to training and information, Farm Advisory Services, investments, development of farms and businesses, basic services, and village development. The evaluation looked at the development of the structure of the Finnish agriculture, assessed short supply chains and the economic status of the producers, and the productivity of agricultural enterprises was analysed.

The evaluation was based on existing monitoring and statistical data. The evaluation will be repeated in 2019, when the quantitative assessment will aim to identify the net impacts of the RDP, distinguishing them from the changes in the operating environment.

This study calculates the effect of the measures investment aid and takeover aid on a number of economic parameters of the supported companies. The investment support is broken down by focus area.

The analysis shows that both takeover aid and investment aid to promote competitiveness have a positive effect on the gross added value of companies. The aid for emissions reduction investments has a negative effect on this parameter, but without this investment aid, this effect would be even more negative, or investments would not happen. Nevertheless, these investments are necessary to remain competitive and to ensure the viability of Flemish companies.
