Background

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.

2016 themes

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.

How to participate

If you wish to contribute to the event as a speaker, please fill in the submission form by 31 May 2016. You will be asked to submit a short biography, title and text of your abstract. Selected speakers will be notified about the acceptance of their contribution and requested to confirm their attendance in June.

Contributions are welcome:

  1. In 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.
