Evaluation for better regulation in environment and climate policies – Lessons from research and practice

Practitioners and users of environmental evaluation, such as evaluators in consultancies, academics, European and national policy-makers, are invited to participate in the 5th European Environmental Evaluators Network Forum (2016 EEEN Forum).


The purpose of the international Environmental Evaluators Network (EEN) is to advance the practice, policy and theory of evaluating environmental programmes, policies and other interventions. Since 2012, the European Environmental Evaluators’ Network (EEEN) has been organising Forums to promote more systematic and collective learning in these areas.


The 2016 EEEN Forum will identify contributions, opportunities and lessons from evaluation research and practice to support better regulation in environment and climate policies. The forum will bring together a wide range of actors and provide a platform for exchange of knowledge, ideas and experiences.

If you would like to contribute to or participate in the 2016 EEEN Forum, stay tuned. The call for contributions will open in early 2016.
