This factsheet sheds light on the methodology used in the ongoing thematic evaluation carried out in five German federal states. The evaluation has already been conducted by the Thünen-Institute of Farm Economics in the programming period 2007-2013 and is again being carried out for the 2014–2020 RDPs.

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.

This report analyses changes in quality of pastures with and without environmental compensation. Data sources from two environmental monitoring programs have been used: Quality monitoring of meadows and pastures and the National Inventory of the Landscape in Sweden (NILS).

The most important conclusions are that there are weak tendencies to change and no reliable connection between change and environmental compensation, and that butterflies and bumblebees are mainly affected by vegetation height, flower richness and landscape type.

The report also contains conclusions on what is needed for further evaluations.

The report contains suggestions on how to make the payments to natural and cultural environments in future rural programs more environmentally friendly. This is to ensure that future programs will achieve a higher goal fulfilment and cost efficiency.

This report is part of the evaluation of the broadband investments financed through the rural development program and regional fund programs in Sweden.

The knowledge overview is made to lay the foundation for future evaluations of investments in broadband during the program period 2014-2020. In this program period, there is broadband support within both the rural development program and within three of the regional fund programs. It is important to evaluate these investments for several reasons: they are large investments, they are funded from two different European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI funds), and they have potentially large and important effects on rural development and regional growth.

This is the report of the ongoing evaluation of the Rural Network. The evaluators have observed, analysed and conducted a dialogue with actors in the Rural Network.

The evaluation points to how the work of setting goals and planning the business so that it becomes consistent, effective and efficient can contribute to the activities being selected and designed so that they contribute to the goals set.

This study covers the evaluation of the ESI funds' implementation organizations in Sweden.

13 ESI fund programs in Sweden together contribute to the EU's 2020 goals. They work relatively well but the implementation can be developed, eg. through clearer prioritization among governing documents and through clearer description and consensus on how each program is expected to achieve its goals. Four different impact traces for impact have been identified. The so-called direct track is dominant in the marine and fisheries program and the rural development program. The power tracks are not in contrast to each other, but strategies and control need to be adapted to the respective tracks, both between and within the programs.
