Moving towards a more Result/Performance-based delivery system in cohesion policy

The aim of this study was to analyse the rationale, features and the conditions under which a more result/performance-oriented delivery system for Cohesion Policy, based on the use of performance indicators, and, potentially, of incentive mechanisms, could be designed and implemented along the different phases of Cohesion Policy implementation. The study was based on literature review, semi-structured interviews with more than 100 stakeholders mainly at regional level, two focus groups and four case studies (Evaluation and performance indicators used by the World Bank; National Performance Reserve in Italy and in Poland; Performance-based delivery system of the EU Rural Development Policy).

Client: European Parliament, DG for Internal Policies of the Union, Directorate B – Structural and Cohesion Policy, 2011.
