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 report summarises the major outcomes of the Good Practice Workshop, 'How to report on evaluation in the Annual Implementation Reports: experiences and outlook', which took place on 19-20 September, 2017 in Riga (Latvia).

The aim of the workshop was to provide a forum for the discussion of challenges faced when carrying out the necessary monitoring and evaluation activities related to the AIR submitted in 2017. Furthermore, this workshop provided a space for the exchange of solutions and the engagement of participants to contribute to the simplification and improvement of the evaluation in the AIRs submitted in 2019 and the ex post evaluation.

This workshop brought together evaluators, Managing Authorities, EC representatives and members of the Evaluation Helpdesk team.

Case studies from Slovakia, Finland, and Latvia, and informative speeches from Spain and the Czech Republic were presented during this workshop and are summarised in this report.

The Guidelines: Evaluation of LEADER/CLLD is a non-binding document, which serves to complement the legal requirements relating to LEADER/CLLD evaluations. The document clarifies the common elements related to LEADER/CLLD evaluations and gives a wider set of recommendations on how to formulate and manage LEADER/CLLD evaluations, both at the RDP and LAG levels. The Guidelines are drafted to be a practical, hands-on guide for LEADER/CLLD evaluation stakeholders. They include step-by-step recommendations on the process and available methodologies for the evaluation of LEADER/CLLD. The Guidelines are divided into four parts:

  • Part 1: introduces LEADER/CLLD as part of the rural development policy and shows its links with other CLLD instruments financed by the ESI Funds.
  • Part 2: explains the evaluation cycle at the RDP level and describes how to assess the contributions of LEADER/CLLD towards fulfilling the EU, national and RDP objectives. 
  • Part 3: provides recommendations for LAGs on how to conduct evaluation activities at the local level, and what support the MA, NRN and other stakeholders may provide to LAGs for this purpose.
  • Part 4: glossary.

Factsheet-Firm-Support-SE

This study used firm-level micro data to estimate the productivity effects of investment support (measure 121). The recently developed Coarsened Exact Matching (CEM) method was used to model the selection bias attached to the assignment of support and to estimate the causal effects.

Good Practice Workshop Report, Bordeaux France

This report summarises the major outcomes of the Good Practice Workshop, “Targeted data management for evidence based evaluation of RDPs 2014-2020”, which took place on 5 - 6 December 2016 in Bordeaux, France. This Good Practice Workshop provided a forum for the discussion and exchange of practices used in different RDPs in 2014-2020. The workshop was hosted by the Region Nouvelle Aquitaine and was well attended by more than 60 participants.

This Good Practice Workshop provided a forum for Managing Authorities, Paying Agencies, LAG-representatives, data providers and evaluators, to:

  • discuss the approaches for data management in RDPs 2014-2020;
  • exchange on the availability and quality of the data to be used for the AIR to be submitted in 2017 and beyond;
  • reflect about potential data gaps and bottlenecks in data management in order to find solutions to overcome them.

Case studies from France, Finland, Italy, Austria and Denmark were presented during this workshop and are summarised in this report.

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.
