Monitoring and Evaluation of the EC IPA rural investment single-donor trust fund
The project contributed to the sustainable and inclusive economic, social and territorial development of the country and to the reduction of regional disparities through the development of physical capital in rural areas. The trust fund, worth €20 million, financed a grant scheme focusing on rural infrastructure in all municipalities, including road, building, water, waste and health infrastructure. The main purpose of this project was to ensure transparent and effective monitoring and evaluation of the fund in order to increase its overall performance, specifically in terms of its value to the beneficiaries. Other factors such as implementation effectiveness, efficiency and the sustainability of the realized investments in rural areas were stringently assessed.
