A solid evidence base on the impacts of different policy measures on the environment is essential to underpin arguments for further integration of environmental concerns into agricultural and other land management policies. To contribute to the development of this evidence base, IEEP is experienced in carrying out technical evaluations of a range of policy measures.

We have undertaken evaluations (both ex ante and ex post) of the environmental impacts of a range of policy measures under both Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 of the CAP for DG Agriculture and Rural Development, DG Climate Action and DG Environment.  These include evaluations of cross-compliance, support for the livestock sector, less favoured areas support, differing levels of modulation, as well as the new CAP greening measures. We have also led assessments for national public bodies and NGOs.
