DG MARE - Project Dates:


Description of Project:
This assignment was an evaluation of a Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreement between the EU and The Gambia.

An ex ante evaluation was carried out in accordance with both the EU Financial Regulation and its Rules of Application and the European Commission's Better Regulation Guidelines and “Toolbox”. A wide range of stakeholders in both the EU and The Gambia were consulted, the former largely using questionnaires with responses provided by email, and the latter through a field mission to The Gambia. Different options were evaluated related to species to be covered by an agreement, with options evaluated against DAC evaluation criteria.
