The European Evaluation Helpdesk for the CAP organises Thematic Working Groups to find practical solutions to specific issues related to the evaluation of the Common Agricultural Policy.
Each Thematic Working Group typically includes members of the Evaluation Helpdesk’s permanent staff as well as selected external experts with relevant knowledge. The topics addressed through a Thematic Working Group are decided by DG AGRI, in cooperation with the Evaluation Helpdesk and in consultation with Member States. DG AGRI staff and Member States' representatives are also invited to contribute to particular Thematic Working Group activities, when appropriate.
The following Thematic Working Groups have been launched:
Related to 2014-2021 implementation period
Related to the 2023-2027 implementation period
The various guidelines and tools developed by the Thematic Working Groups can be downloaded from the Evaluation Helpdesk’s publication database.
