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, forums of the European Environmental Evaluators’ Network (EEEN) have been organised to promote more systematic and collective learning in these areas. The 2015 EEEN Forum (see programme) has brought together practitioners and users of environmental evaluation to share views, knowledge and experiences about the use, relevance and future priorities for climate and environment policy evaluation from their respective viewpoints.
