Project ID: 22708
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the ADVANCED-EVAL project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, ADVANCED-EVAL aimed to develop innovative quantitative methods to improve evaluation techniques applied in rural development programmes. Its contribution was of major importance, given that policy evaluation has become a major issue for many international organisations including the European Commission.

The document firstly provides an overview of the project objectives, structure and participants. It then analyses the various developed methods and tools and focuses on the performed analyses and the conclusions derived by the methodologies' application in specific case studies. A comparison between the quantitative evaluation approaches and the widespread qualitative alternatives is also presented. The report closes with recommendations on future work and successful project implementation.
