CAP monitoring and evaluation indicators
The implementation of the CAP 2014-2020 will be measured against a set of indicators that covers all policy areas and provides information at various levels.
- Output indicators report on the degree of activity of a policy measure (e.g., the number of projects funded); they are linked to individual policy interventions.
- Result indicators measure the direct, immediate effect of the policy measure (e.g., the number of jobs created), in relation to the specific policy objectives.
- Impact indicators look at the effect in the longer term (e.g. rural unemployment rate). Overall, impact indicators are linked to the general objectives of the CAP.
- Context indicators reflect relevant aspects of the general contextual trends in the economy, environment and society that are likely to have an influence on the implementation, achievements and performance of the CAP.
