Programme definition and planning involves setting out a strategy for the programme’s contribution to the Union and National strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth consistent with the relative funding rules.

In this context, PLANET provides the following services:

  • Strategic planning of EU funded sectorial and regional Operational Programmes (OPs).
  • Ex-ante evaluations to improve the quality of the design of the programme, incorporating, where appropriate, a Strategic Environmental Assessment.
  • Formulation of Integrated Plans for Sustainable Urban Development.
  • Design of management and control systems to ensure the effective implementation of policies/strategies.
