This Mid-Term Evaluation (MTE) has been commissioned to advise on the progress to-date of the activities undertaken under the LIFE+ Regulation (the Regulation), introduced in 2007, examining the relevance, economy, effectiveness, efficiency, consistency, distributional effects and acceptability of the Regulation.
The MTE is required under Articles 15(2) and 9 of the Regulation. Its purpose is to provide Commission policy makers and managers with a useful aid in the implementation of current initiatives and future programming, and in particular, to provide useful information as a basis for the future Commission Communication to the European Parliament and the Committee on the implementation of the LIFE+ Regulation.
