Policies, Plans, Programs and Projects Evaluation

The evaluation of public policies has gradually become an essential management tool used by decision makers and more recently as a way of informing the public.
Due to its participation at international level, Oréade-Brèche has developed a high level of know-how in this domain, especially in terms of methodological innovation as well as studies on lessons learnt from multiple evaluations.
Our principle areas of intervention are agriculture, the forest, coastal zone management, development and the environment.

Evaluation study of the payment for agricultural practices beneficial for the climate and the environment ("greening" of direct payments).

Client(s) : European commission - DG Agri - 2016 - 2017
The objective of the contract was to carry out ‘an evaluation study of the payment for agricultural practices beneficial for the climate and the environment (“greening measures” in direct payments). It covered 15 evaluation study questions relating to causal analysis (in terms of the effects of the measures on cropping patterns, grassland maintenance, production, economic viability of farms), effectiveness (in relation to their environmental objectives), efficiency, coherence, relevance and EU added value.
The scope of the evaluation covered the three greening measures under the Direct payments regulation as well as measures complementary to greening measures, in particular cross-compliance, the way that the CAP definition of permanent grassland has been applied in Member States and AECM. The way in which other CAP instruments and measures (e.g. the use of voluntary coupled support) and other EU measures (e.g. concerning Natura 2000 areas and the Birds and Habitats directives) were implemented in Member States were also relevant in cases where they interacted with or influenced the implementation of the greening measures.
The geographical scope of the evaluation was the EU-28 and the study covered the period from 1 January 2015, the date from which the greening measures were implemented in Member States. The period from 2003 was taken into account where necessary to provide a reference point for the analysis.
