  3. The consortium comprising the Agricultural University of Athens and LKN ANALYSIS Ltd. were assigned in 2019 the project “Provision of technical and administrative support for the design of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Strategic Plan 2023-2027” (Greece), with a total duration of 3.5 years. The official approval of the Strategic Plan by the European Commission was announced on November 21th, 2022, with the total resources to be allocated to Greece amounting to €14,250,559,104.


The project was assigned in 2019, following an international call for tenders, to the consortium comprising LKN ANALYSIS Ltd and the University of the Aegean (Greece). One of the main activities of the project is capacity building for public authorities and administrations.
Capacity building for monitoring and evaluation is a crucial parameter for the success of a macro-regional Strategy such as the EUSAIR, taking into account the different levels of knowledge and practical experience in programme monitoring and evaluation between the EU and IPA Member States. In addition, different knowledge and skills are required for monitoring and evaluation at the macro-regional Strategy level compared to those required for programme monitoring and evaluation. Therefore, a number of capacity building events were envisaged in the context of Work Package 3 of the EUSAIR Facility Point, namely eight national capacity building events, organised by the EUSAIR Facility Point project partners, and two macro-regional capacity building events.
The first macro-regional event took place in Athens (Greece), in 2019, focusing on the state of play of the EUSAIR Facility Point Work Package 3 “Monitoring and Evaluation”. Guidance was provided on the preparation of the EUSAIR Pillar 1 Annual Monitoring Report 2019 and the Annual EUSAIR Synthetic Report 2019.
The 2nd macro-regional event was held in 2022 (Ljubljana, Slovenia, December 2022). The meeting focused on procedures, methods and tools of capturing the EUSAIR achievements, in terms of outputs, results and impacts, proposed indicators and best practices from other macro-regional Strategies.
Regarding the national events, three national capacity building events for monitoring and evaluation have taken place so far, namely in Italy (Bologna, July 2022), Slovenia (September 2022, online event) and Croatia (Plitvice, November 2022). In the above events, LKN ANALYSIS Ltd. participated either in person (Italy, Croatia, Slovenia – 2nd macro-regional event), or online (Slovenia – national event), presenting proposals related to the monitoring and evaluation system of the macro-regional Strategy.
The capacity building events will be completed within 2023, with the organisation of the national event in Greece (February 2023), as well as the relevant events for the five candidate countries of the Western Balkans participating in the EUSAIR (Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia).
