Work package 3 will focus on evaluation of the iPAAC Joint Action. The goal of the evaluation is firstly to evaluate the design of the project, to continuously perform a rigorous analysis of the goals, objectives and activities in each of the work package, and to determine whether the project as a whole has produced planned results, delivered expected benefits, and made desired change.

As a process, project evaluation takes a series of steps to identify and measure the outcomes and impacts resulted from project completion. Evaluation team will collect relevant data throughout the whole duration of the project, and after its completion, to derive informed conclusions and evaluations. It is important to evaluate the project’s process at the beginning of the project, to get a clear picture of the basic timeframe and roles of all the parties involved. SWOT analysis framework will be utilized when preparing both interim reports and the final report. Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to the project will be analysed in each of the reports produces by the evaluation team.

After the first year of the project we will start to evaluate all the planned outputs, impacts and outcomes. An integral part of all Joint Action projects is to have a good collaboration between partners, and this cooperation will be evaluated throughout the duration of the Action. It is also important that the results, guidelines and documents from this project be visible to all the stakeholders and interested partners, NGOs and individuals, and the best way to ensure that is comprehensive web campaigning. The visibility of the project will also be evaluated at the end of the first year and at other milestones of the action
