EIP Water Monitoring & Evaluation report 2016
Monitoring reports on the performance and impact of the EIP Water have been published for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015. This report covers the performance and impact of EIP Water for the year 2016.
Since the inception, the monitoring follows a consistent scheme allowing to trace trends and changes in performance from one year to the next. In November 2013, the EIP Water Task Force agreed on a Monitoring & Evaluation Framework document , though suggesting to explore possibilities for further development of impact indicators. In March 2014, such modifications have been made and published and in 2016 additional indicators were developed and assessed.
Despite improvements of the indicator system, all initial indicators and the information they deliver are still available for the 2016 report and comparable to the results of the reports of previous years. Therefore, wherever possible this comparison is included in the graphs and tables of this report.
The indicators are divided in two groups
1. Performance indicators (see Annex I)
2. Impact indicators (see Annex II)
By July 2015 the EC developed indicators for a general Monitoring Scheme for all EIPs (see ANNEX VI – Monitoring results compilation (general monitoring requirements for all EIPs). Most of these indicators have already been covered by the monitoring scheme of the EIP Water, the remaining indicators have been included to the extent possible.
