The project comprises the medium-term evaluation (2002-2003) and the ex-post evaluation (2007-2008) of the rural development programme ‘Zukunftsinitiative für den ländlichen Raum’ (ZIL) of Rhineland-Palatinate. The support measures that will be covered comprise:

  • improvement of the competitiveness of agriculture;
  • agri-environmental measures and less favoured areas;
  • forestry and afforestation;
  • village renewal;
  • diversification of income generation and employment in rural areas.

The evaluation of forestry measures is carried out in co-operation with the Institut für Forstpolitik (Institute for Forestry Policy) in Freiburg. Key aspects in the evaluation are:

  • the degree of realisation of programme objectives and planning;
  • the targeting and tailoring of individual measures;
  • the quality of implementation structures (co-ordination, co-operation, participation) and monitoring.
