How were the projects selected?

All completed projects are initially assessed by technical monitoring experts. The monitors rank all the projects that end during the reference period to produce a first list of "Best" projects. The final evaluation is undertaken by the Member States, each "Best" project being further evaluated by at least two Member States, and an average score is established also taking into account the monitors' evaluation. The 3 top scoring projects in each category are the Best of the Best projects. The projects are awarded under three categories: Nature, Environment, and Environment with a particular focus on climate action.
