In 2017, the formative thematic evaluation of the AECMs was conducted. It aimed to estimate the relevance and applicability of the RDP in Mayotte.
The results of the evaluation shed light on the Managing Authorities choices concerning the modifications of Measure 10 to be submitted to the European Commission in order to envisage the opening and the access of the AECMs to farmers of the territory in 2018.
The study evaluates both the overall mechanism of the AECMs and the operational character of the AECMs in Mayotte on an individual basis.

This report summarises the major outcomes of the Good Practice Workshop, 'Approaches to Assess Environmental RDP Impacts in 2019', which was hosted by the European Evaluation Helpdesk for Rural Development. 

The workshop aimed at showing and discussing practical examples of evaluation approaches for assessing the environmental related CAP Pillar II impact indicators and for answering the related Common Evaluation Questions (CEQ) in 2019.


As a continuation of the work performed in 2016, the Evaluation Helpdesk has in 2017 developed a Methodological Factsheet which was distributed to all Managing Authorities. The Methodological Factsheet has been conceptualised as a tool for the European Commission and the Member States to collect the approaches used for the HNV farming indicator in a comparable format. This working document presents the results and findings of this survey. 

This case study from Finland focuses on the evaluation of the impacts of EU rural development measures and programmes on climate stability at the macro level using a multi-regional dynamic partial equilibrium modelling approach.


In order to explore the Member States’s approaches on HNV farming in the new programming period the European Evaluation Heldpesk for Rural Development has (1) carried out an HNV survey in May-July 2016 and (2) organised an HNV Good Practice Workshop in June 2016, which provided a platform for representatives of DG Agri, Member States and HNV practitioners to discuss examples of good practices in identifying, monitoring and assessing HNV farming. This Working Document highlights the outcomes of this survey and the conclusions from the Good Practice Workshop organised in Bonn, Germany. 

This factsheet presents the main challenges for evaluating the contributions of the two most important sub-measures of the agri-environmental scheme (i.e. integrated and organic production) for GHG emissions.


This factsheet draws attention to a new targeted and cost-effective concept for HNV monitoring in Germany, which has been developed by the Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) in cooperation with private consultants.


This factsheet highlights the HNV map for Denmark developed by the Danish Centre for Environment and Energy at Aarhus University
