Workshop on Strategic Programming and Monitoring and Evaluation for RDPs 2014-2020
Brussels, Belgium: 14-15 March 2012

The future CAP is called upon to respond to important economic, environmental and social challenges and to contribute for agriculture and rural areas to the Europe 2020 smart, sustainable and inclusive goals in the form of viable food production, sustainable management of natural resources and climate action, and balanced territorial development. The future monitoring and evaluation system will serve to help assess the progress, efficiency and effectiveness of the policy in meeting these objectives.

To assist in this process, the ENRD and the European Evaluation Network (EEN) jointly organized a workshop on Strategic programming and RDP Monitoring and Evaluation in Brussels on the 14 and 15 March 2012.
