This analysis examines the extent to which Regional Development Strategies (RES) for the implementation of LEADER in Thuringia correspond to the intentions and objectives of the RDP and to what extent the design of the RES is coherent with objectives and identified needs of the RDP. The study captures quantitative and qualitative aspects. The report covers the SWOT and needs assessments included in the RES, as well as the LEADER-specific target indicators of the EU's Joint Monitoring and Assessment System (CMES). In addition, the provisions of the RAG for monitoring and evaluation is also included in the analysis.
Thus, the present analysis is a building block for evaluation of LEADER in the context of the evaluation of the RDP.
