Commissioned by: Međimurje County
Project duration: April, 2014 - June, 2017
Project manager: Irena Đokić, PhD
Collaborators: Ivana Rašić, Nenad Starc

Brief outline:
The main purpose of ex-ante evaluation was to improve the quality of county development strategy (CDS) and in parallel, the quality of the whole programming process. Evaluation contributed to achievement of linkage between CDS (in this case of Međimurje County) with the Strategy of Regional Development of the Republic of Croatia and ensured coherence with other county and national strategic development documents as well as with those at EU level. Ex-ante evaluation ensured that CDS of Međimurje County is evaluated based on the following main criteria: - justification of CDS; - relevance (relevance and strengths of information and their completeness); - consistency of objectives; - coherence (internal: sinergy between CDS objectives, external: with other development programmes).
