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. Contributions will address:

  1. The areas of thematic priority objectives of the 7th Environment Action Programme. Thematic priority objectives relate to:
    • Natural capital. Examples: evaluations of natural capital, biodiversity and water management or policies;
    • Resource-efficient, green and competitive low-carbon economy. Examples: evaluations of policies in the areas of circular economy, climate change, energy, and transport;
    • Environment-related pressures and risks to health and well-being. Examples: evaluations of policies in the areas of air, waste, and health.

  2. How evaluations are done in a better regulation context. This may include, for example, submissions on how to improve evaluative knowledge for better regulation in environment and climate policies. Other contributions may consider the communication, relevance and impact of evaluations, as well as at the institutional evaluation set-up at national level.
