Brussels – 14/12/2010: The Ex-Post Evaluation of Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) 2000-2006

Kantor Rural Development Unit in Brussels has been awarded by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development, the contract to deliver an ex-post evaluation of RDPs for the previous programming period (2000-2006). The work consists of the synthesis of the individual programme-specific ex-post evaluation reports, and the evaluation of EAGGF-Guidance co-financed rural development measures implemented in Objective 1 regions of the EU (i.e. regions with a GDP below 75% of the EU average) and EAGGF-Guarantee co-financed rural development measures implemented in Objective 2 regions (i.e. areas facing structural difficulties, such as industrial, rural, urban or dependent on fisheries, and hence, faced with different types of socio-economic difficulties that are often the source of high unemployment) in France.
