New Guidelines: Design of evaluation plans 

Jul 19, 2023 | EU Institutions

At the end of June, the European Evaluation Helpdesk for the CAP published a guideline on the ‘Design of evaluation plans’. 

An evaluation plan describes how EU Member States will evaluate their CAP Strategic Plan, as well as how they intend to use subsequent results to improve implementation and future policy making.  

These guidelines provide the minimum and recommended content for evaluation plans that can be further adapted to the needs of EU Member States during the 2023-2027 programming period.  

They are available in all EU langauage and describe the content for each section of the evaluation plan, key terms to consider, examples of questions to ask when drafting each section of the evaluation plan and the links between the different sections. The guidelines are complemented by a separate toolbox that includes a description of the proposed working steps for developing each section of the evaluation plan.
