Ex post evaluation of Rural Development Programmes is a legal requirement under Council Regulation (EC) No 1698/2005 and the overall aim is to improve quality, efficiency and effectiveness. 


The ex post evaluation of the NIRDP is the final part of ongoing evaluation of the 2007-2013 programming period and the evaluation has built upon all monitoring and evaluation activities conducted throughout the programme implementation period. It focuses on both the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and the Northern Ireland Executive funds delivered through the NIRDP over the period 2007-2013.
