The Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production (HPK) and the Working Group on Waste (NAG) of the Nordic Council of Ministers hereby call for a project to share the Nordic experience with sustainable consumption and production in the textile and fashion sector at the global level through the 10 Years Framework Program for Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP). Background The fashion and textile sector is one of the most polluting and resource demanding industries globally. This is caused by its huge consumption of energy, water, chemicals and pesticides, which causes negative effects on the environment including the working environment. Many different activities to reduce the environmental and health effects caused by production and consumption of textiles in the Nordic countries are being carried out by the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Nordic countries and the private sector in the Nordic countries. A number of these activities have developed guidelines/tools that provide useful information on sustainable production and consumption of textiles for the global value chain of textiles. To facilitate the sharing of the Nordic experience globally it is under the Nordic Action Plan for Sustainable Fashion and Textiles and by the Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production (HPK) ( proposed to include textiles under the 10 Year Framework on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP). Aim The aim of the project is to support information exchange on the possibilities for increasing sustainable consumption and production in the textile and fashion sector at the global level based on Nordic experiences and work. The target group The target group is decision makers and officials in the Nordic countries together with National Focal points for the 10 Years Framework Program for Sustainable Consumption and Production. Project context The Nordic Council of Ministers for the Environment endorsed a Nordic action plan for a sustainable fashion and textile industry, http:// http://norden.diva-portal.org/smash/get/diva2:819423/FULLTEXT01.pdf The action plan aimed “at further developing Nordic co-operation within the parameters of the action plan, and where appropriate, to disseminate in the Nordic Region and globally, e.g. initiatives for international work may be taken under Nordic auspices. This could take the form of work to encourage the use of environmental accounts in the textile industry, or of the Nordic countries suggesting that textiles be the theme of a new program under the UN´s 10-Year Framework of Programs on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns.” After discussion within the Focal group for 10YFP under the working group for Sustainable Consumption and Production (HPK) it was decided to choose the program for sustainable lifestyles and education under 10YFP as the appropriate location for the results of the project. Project content The project is divided into the following 3 parts: I. Development of a value chain approach for textiles. The value chain for production and consumption of textiles is rather complicated and includes many value chain actors for which a few are mentioned below: • Input suppliers: farmers; petrochemicals for polymer fibres; industrial cotton ginning; small—scale cotton ginning/spinning; industrial spinning; importers and vendor; weavers; textile manufacture/producer/converter; textile treatment actors; designers/entrepreneurs. • Market players: wholesalers/retailers; exporters; agents/shippers; Importers; second hand actors. Beside the value chain actors there are many non-value chain actors, such as: • Governments, educational institutions, associations, cooperatives/NGOs, international institutions. In coordination with the secretariat for Sustainable Lifestyles and Education a simple structure will be developed for a value chain approach to be incorporated into the program on Sustainable Lifestyles and Education. Proposed activities To identify the potential reports/guidance’s the following activities will be carried out: Development of structure to organize the value chain in the program of Sustainable Lifestyles and Education. This structure will be based on international recognized literature such as Ellen MacArthur Foundations report A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashions future. 1. This will be done in close cooperation with the secretariat for Sustainable Lifestyle and Education 2. Identification of actors in the value chain and non-value chain actors. II. Identification of Nordic guidance’s to be included in sustainable lifestyles and education be at the appropriate place in the value chain Nordic activities on textiles and fashion have resulted in a number of published reports/guidance’s that might be useful at the global level, such as: 1. EPR systems and new business models: Reuse and recycling of textiles in the Nordic region (2014) 2. Mapping sustainable textile initiatives and a potential roadmap for a Nordic Action Plan, 2015 3. A Nordic textile strategy Part II: A proposal for increased collection, sorting, reuse and recycling of textiles, 2015 4. The Nordic textile commitment - A proposal of a common quality requirement system for textile collection, sorting, reuse and recycling 5. Exports of Nordic Used Textiles: Fate, benefits and impacts, 2016. 6. Well dressed in a clean environment-Nordic Action plan for sustainable fashion and textiles, 2015 7. Greener textiles in hospitals-Guide to green procurement in the health care sector, 2017 There are in addition to the above a few Nordic projects that will be finalized this year: • A common Nordic approach for supplier management of the content of chemicals in textiles (a step by step guidance) • Development of a common Nordic platform for education in sustainable textile design. In addition the HKP group has produced previous reports dealing with the textile product chains as follows: -Sustainable Textile Production Tirupur, India: Final report from a multi-stakeholder pilot implementation project in the Nordic countries and Tirupur, India: http://norden.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2%3A800866&dswid=2733 -The Potential for Green Textile sourcing from Tirupur: – on the path to more sustainable global textile chains: http://norden.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2%3A702345&dswid=2733 Many activities are being carried out by the individual Nordic countries as described in the above Nordic working paper from 2015. The above guidance´s are candidates for inclusion in the program on Lifestyles and Education. The Nordic guidance’s are based on the Nordic perspective and might need to be amended to be globally relevant. However, some of the guidance’s might be incorporated into the program without changes. However, this must be assessed in the project. The number of guidance’s to be amended to be relevant at the global level will depend on the budget available for the project. Proposed activities To identify the potential reports/guidance’s the following activities will be carried out: 1. Listing of Nordic Council of Ministers activities on textiles 2. Development of criterions for assessment of the potential of the above activities to be useful at the global level 3. Assessment of the above reports/guidance’s for the potential relevance at the global level without amendments 4. Identification of reports/guidance’s that need to be amended before incorporation into the program 5. It should also include an evaluation of the target audience for a revised guidance and the part of the value chain to be addressed. 6. The consultants will assess the guidance(s) that might be used after amendment and prepare a draft proposal for the amendments of the guidance(s) including an assessment of the costs. The proposal might include suggestions for shortening the guidance’s and to bring it in accordance with the need of the target group III. Incorporation of Nordic guidance’s into 10YFP´s program on Sustainable Lifestyles and Education and information activities The program on sustainable Lifestyles and Education is focused on three work areas: 1. Developing and replicating sustainable lifestyles, including low-carbon lifestyles 2. Education as part of sustainable lifestyles 3. Transforming current and shaping future generation’s lifestyles Proposed activities The following activities are envisaged 1. Discussion with the Co-leads and the secretariat for the program on the process for incorporation of textiles and fashion into the program on Lifestyles. 2. Development of a communication strategy incl. development of information material for the website to inform potential partners as well as press material. 3. Uploading of the documents on the website. 4. Development of a procedure which provides the possibility for stakeholders outside Nordic countries to upload their guidance’s/documents on sustainable textiles and fashion on the 10 YFP website Steering group The focal group for 10 YFP under SCP group (HKP) a representative from the Working Group on Waste (NAG) and a co-lead from the program on sustainable lifestyles and education will act as a steering group for the project. The project will be carried out in close cooperation with the steering group and the first meeting, that must be attended by all the sub-consultants, shall take place within one month after signing the agreement. The contract is signed with the coordinator of the SCP working group, Camilla Sederholm. The steering group and the SCP group will give final approval to the results.

Railway information system integration service (RIPA), request for information. Please note: this is not a formal request for applications to tender nor does it form part of any tender process. This is a Market Consultation process only concerning the possible purchase of the railway information system integration service. The Finnish Transport Agency (FTA) is inviting market operators to engage in a technical and service dialogue with regard to the railway system integration service. This request for information initiates the technical and service dialogue. The technical and service dialogue consists of the questions in the request for information and possibly further discussions and the presentation of the market operator’s products and services to FTA. Replying to the request for information or participating in the technical and service dialogue is not binding on the market operator, and no compensation is paid for participation. The technical and service dialogue or the request for information related to it do not constitute a contract notice or an invitation to tender, and they do not obligate FTA to initiate the procurement. Responding to the request for information or failing to respond to it or participate in the technical and service dialogue or not participate in it do not affect the market operator’s possibilities to participate or not participate in the actual procurement if one is carried out. For taking part to dialog, please inform FTA representative, Ms. Tehanu Tapola, by email (tehanu.tapola@liikennevirasto.fi) no later than 25.3.2016 and provide your comments/answers for requested information with the contact details which you prefer to be used in this matter. Follow up and possible further discussions will take place during March – May 2016. Market operator may choose to conduct the dialog either in Finnish or English. Introduction The Finnish Transport Agency (FTA) enables smooth, efficient and safe travel and transport. FTA is responsible for Finnish roads, railways and waterways and for the overall development of Finland's transport system. FTA promotes an effective transport system, traffic safety and a sustainable development of the regions. FTA is an expert organization specializing in transport and operates under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transport and Communications and employs approx. 650 professionals. FTA’s tasks vary from expertise in the transport field to operative traffic control and administration. The responsibilities of the Development of Railway Traffic Services (DRTS) unit within FTA include railway traffic control related IT systems. DRTS is planning to renew the system integration service within next 2 years. As part of the planning for renewal DRTS is opening a dialog with suppliers by this RFI. Service description Scope of the request is railway information system integration service and related services for FTA. Services will be responsible for all systems integrations between different railway related systems and external systems and covers integration related services on top of this system. Current environment contains about 25 systems and 50 interfaces of which about 7 systems have message load of over 1 million messages per month. Altogether, there are approximately 15 million inbound messages and 40 million outbound messages per month. The volumes will continue to rise approximately up to ten times in the next ten years. Future state includes increased number of systems and increased need for message orchestration. The service consists of production and test environments for external systems integration. We are open to suggestions on how to implement the required integration service. There can be several possible business models but in any case the service provider should take full responsibility of the working of the integration, regardless of existence of any subcontractors. Please note that the system servers should be located in Finland and the service should be produced in Finland. Current adapters to other systems are FTP and HTTP adapters and mainly XML messages in store-and-forward model. The adapters and message formats must be able to follow technical development in future years. The period of the contract will be at least 10 years. Naturally the servers running the service can be updated during that period but it should cause only a very minimal service break, preferably none. Requested information 1. References and commercial issues 1.1 Please provide relevant references about system integration services which have been implemented within last 5 years. Implementation must be based on the solution you are offering and provided by your company. Each reference must include a contact person from supplier side and may include also contact from purchaser side. 1.2 Please describe what kind of pricing models you prefer. 2. System integration service functional and technical issues 2.1 Please provide generic description how integrations and high availability are automatically handled in your solution. 2.2 Please provide description of how message transformation, message routing and filtering and message multiplication are handled in your solution? 2.3 Please list the standard integration adapter technologies your solution supports out of the box, if any. Do include at least the following aspects: adapters that your solution can use to connect to external systems and the message formats that the adapter supports. 2.4 Please describe in detail what kind of support your solution has for high availability, like guaranteed message delivery when one system component fails. Describe also the recovery mechanisms after a system failure. Service downtime of 15 minutes is already enough to cause problems to railway traffic, so any faults should be corrected faster than that. How does your recovery plan take that requirement into account? Describe how your solution can be upgraded without interruption to message delivery (developed integrations, integration software, operating system, hardware, database, etc.). 2.5 Systems integration service needs to deliver certain types of messages in chronological order reliably. This means that incoming messages are delivered to each target system in the same order that they are received. Describe what features your solution supports to provide this option. How does your solution guarantee chronological message delivery while implementing high availability in the solution? 2.6 Please describe, what are the suggested hardware requirements of your out of the box solution for guaranteed message delivery for a peak load of 100 non chronological messages per second, message size averaging 50Kb. Please describe how the solution can be scaled for future needs. 2.7 Please describe what kind of features your solution offers for inspecting and analyzing real time message flow through the system. The solution needs to support online troubleshooting, detailed performance reporting including message delivery times. 2.8 What kind of security features does your service support? The service needs to support the Finnish governmental elevated security level (korotettu taso). 2.9 How does your solution support monitoring the service availability? 2.10 How does your solution support monitoring the functioning of integrations and integration health of external systems? 2.11 What kind of development tools does your solution support for developing message transformation, message routing and filtering and message multiplication? What kind of version control tools are available? How about tools for deployment to testing, staging and production environments? How is developer productivity taken into account in development tools? You may include additional material describing the products you use. 3. Integration service issues In addition to the integration platform, FTA has the need to constantly monitor the functioning of the integrations between systems. In addition, the complexity of the integrations requires the service provider to engage in and coordinate fault resolving activities related to the integration system and connected system functionality in case of an integration fault. Some integrations span multiple systems to form complex integration orchestrations. Two examples of such current integrations are given in appendix 1. 3.1 How does your company’s integration service monitor the end to end integration health and check that the integration is working properly? 3.2 How does your company train the personnel responsible for ensuring production integration health? 3.3 There is a need to monitor the health of integrations and engage in and coordinate fault resolving activities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. How does you service quickly detect an integration fault? How does your service engage in fault management of integrations? How does the service identify cause of integration fault in the integration system? How does the service identify cause of integration fault in the connected system? How can the service quality of end-to-end integrations be monitored in real time? 3.4 The service needs to resolve integration issues as fast as possible. How does your service coordinate the resolving of the integration fault, including external systems and organizations? How does the service inform each party when integration is functioning properly? 3.5 The service needs to log each fault issue and root cause of issue. How does the service log and inform FTA of integration fault cause and the expected fault resolve time when an integration issue happens? How does the service report integration faults to FTA periodically? How do you improve the service based on resolved faults? You may include additional material describing your service management. 4. Service development issues 4.1 What kind of services does your company offer for developing new integrations? How many integration architects does your company have? How many integration developers does you company have? In what geographic location is the service produced? In what geographic location is the service project managed? How do you test the integrations? 4.2 What kind of a development and deployment process do you have from an integration need to production? How do you ensure the quality of the service development? 4.3 How do you ensure the continuity of the integration service even in national crisis (poikkeustila)? 4.4 How does your company manage integration service technology lifecycle for up to 10 years, taking into account new hardware, operating system versions and new software versions? 4.5 Currently there is a parameter table that is used to match which incoming messages are forwarded to other systems. There is a user interface for FTA for editing the contents of the table. What kind of integration configuration and parametrizing does your solution provide for FTA, not requiring actual service development? 4.6 Is your solution compliant with EU regulations Telematics Application for Freight and Telematics Applications for Passenger (http://taf-jsg.info/), see Common Interface (http://ccs.rne.eu/index.php/home.html)? You may include additional material describing your service development. RIPA, Appendix 1 Train readiness indication Train conductor or driver calls with a phone to CallServer when he signals the train being ready to leave. CallServer sends a RailMessage-message via the integration service to LIIKE-system and waits for an answer. LIIKE-system makes the necessary checks, for example checking that the train has a timetable with a start time in the near future. If everything is ok, LIIKE system sends a TrainReady-message to the integration service. The integration service acknowledges the reception of TrainReady-message to LIIKE system, and at the same time TrainReady-message is copied and sent to the ESKO system. LIIKE-system receives a TrainReady-acknoledgement. LIIKE-system answers an acknowledgement through the integration system to CallServer’s original message, which the CallServer inform to the caller. If conditions for departure are not ok, TrainReady message is not sent and LIIKE system answers the CallServer an error message to be sent to the caller. Train offering Integration service makes an automatically timed or manual request from user interface for train offerings. The manual request can be parametrized for certain dates or to be received by certain receiving systems. The request is sent to LIIKE system, which collects all requested train schedules to a ZIP package and transfers this package to the integration service. LIIKE system then sends an acknowledgement message to the integration service, notifying the integration service with ZIP package readiness and location. Integration service then unzips the package and sends individual train schedules in XML format to different systems. Railway information system integration service (RIPA), request for information.

Environmental Claims for Textiles on the Nordic Market

Suomen ympäristökeskus | Published March 19, 2018  -  Deadline April 19, 2018

Environmental Claims for Textiles on the Nordic Market The Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production (HKP/SPC) of the Nordic Council of Ministers hereby calls for tenders for a project aimed at mapping the environmental labels and declarations used for consumer textiles in the Nordic market. The study will encompass environmental labels and declarations of the ISO types I and II. The results of the project results will provide a basis for planning future activities, as well as disseminate knowledge about the prevalence of environmental labels and claims in the consumer textiles market. The study will also serve as a starting point for further research on the subject, as well as support Nordic consumer agencies working with misleading marketing through green claims. Background The fact that the various stages of textile production and consumption have considerable environmental, as well as social, impact throughout the product life cycle, has been confirmed through numerous studies. Consumer behavior and psychology with regards to disposal of textile products has also been extensively investigated. Recent studies show that approximately 1.2 million Swedes express an interest in changing their consumption behavior in order to achieve environmental sustainability. In response to the increased consumer environmental awareness, many traders have created environmental profiles through launching collections, certifications and labels, specifically geared towards the environmentally conscious consumer. However, the different environmental labels and schemes differ widely. It is often unclear and difficult to discern what a certain label, certification or self-declared claim actually means from an environmental point of view, if anything. The fact that the numerous trader initiatives are often unclear and differ from one another to a great extent, combined with the sheer number of different labels and claims on the market, most likely makes it very difficult for the consumers to make informed business decisions with regards to sustainability and the environment. The use of environmental arguments in marketing, for example expressed through labels or certifications or claims, is subject to legal requirements with regards to reliability. The consumer protection authorities tasked with market surveillance regarding misleading marketing have an important role to play in the strive towards sustainable consumption, primarily through surveillance regarding green claims and greenwashing. The amount of different environmental schemes on the consumer textiles market, in conjunction with the difficulty in discerning what the schemes actually entail, might impede consumer agencies from effective surveillance. EU funded and published in 2014 Green claims report, which is a thorough analysis of the use of labels and claims at the European market. This is to be taken as a background in this work, and focus on textiles and the Nordic market. - At the page https://ec.europa.eu/info/live-work-travel-eu/consumers/unfair-treatment/unfair- treatment-policy-information_en#environmental-claims download: Environmental claims for non-food products In view of the situation described above, there is a need to map the extent and number of different environmental labels and certifications in the consumer textile market, as well as to thoroughly illustrate the concrete meaning and content of the respective labels and certifications. Aim The aim of the project, in brief, is to provide a structured and clear inventory of the different environmental labelling and certification schemes that the consumers face on the Nordic textile market. This to gain knowledge of the extent and content of the environmental arguments that the consumers face, which might then be used as a basis for further studies, to aid consumer agencies in their work and to facilitate stakeholder dialogue. Target groups The target groups are decision-makers and officials primarily at local, regional and national level in the Nordic countries, but also at international level. Project context The HKP/SPC working group is to contribute to the implementation of the Nordic Environmental Action Plan 2013 – 2018 http://norden.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?dswid=7447&pid=diva2%3A701437&c=3&searchType=SIMPLE&language=en&query=Environmental+Action+Plan+2013&af=%5B%5D&aq=%5B%5B%5D%5D&aq2=%5B%5B%5D%5D&aqe=%5B%5D&noOfRows=50&sortOrder=author_sort_asc&sortOrder2=title_sort_asc&onlyFullText=false&sf=all The activities of the groups must reflect the priorities of the Nordic Environmental Action Plan 2013 -2018, in Chapter 1. Inclusive green development, 1.1 Sustainable productions and consumption and 1.2. Resource efficiency and waste, with an emphasis on resource efficiency. The HKP/SPC working group should focus on efforts to promote green social development, which includes preventing emissions and waste through resource efficiency in consumption and production. The HKP/SPC working group should contribute to international development within its areas of responsibility. The project should be conducted in cooperation between at least three Nordic countries (or Nordic autonomies) This means that the project should be clearly anchored to at least three Nordic countries, e.g. through consulting organisations or their consultants working in, or interviews and other data collection taking place in, at least three Nordic countries or autonomies.

1 Background 1.1. The Central Baltic programme The Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020 (programme) is a cross-border co-operation programme funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The programme has an ERDF fund of 122 MEUR. The programme funds co-operation projects between partners from Finland (including Åland islands), Estonia, Latvia and Sweden. The projects can be implemented under one of the following strategic goals: • Competitive economy (Priority axis 1); • Sustainable use of common resources (Priority axis 2); • Well-connected region (Priority axis 3); • Skilled and socially inclusive region (Priority axis 4). The four priorities of the programme are further split into Specific Objectives, each covered by an explanation of the foreseen actions and with output and result indicators defined. The Specific Objectives are divided between the priorities in the following way: Competitive economy: New Central Baltic knowledge intensive companies More entrepreneurial youth More exports by the Central Baltic companies to new markets Sustainable use of common resources Natural and cultural resources developed into sustainable tourist attractions Sustainably planned and managed marine and coastal areas Better urban planning in the Central Baltic region Reduced nutrients, hazardous substances and toxins inflow into the Baltic Sea Well-connected region Improved transport flows of people and goods Improved services of existing small ports to improve local and regional mobility and contribute to tourism development Skilled and socially inclusive region More people benefiting from stronger Central Baltic communities More aligned vocational education and training (VET) programmes in the Central Baltic region For each Specific Objective the programme has defined indicative actions, foreseen partners as well as output and result indicators. The programme set-up is defined according to the logic chain model, presented below. The official language of the programme is English. The programme is implemented by the Managing Authority, hosted by the Regional Council of Southwest Finland. Buyer of the service: Varsinais-Suomen liitto (Y-tunnus: 0922305-9) Address: P.O. Box 273 (Ratapihankatu 36), 20101 Turku Other key programme bodies are the Monitoring Committee, which is set up to monitor and steer the programme implementation, and the Steering Committee, which has been delegated the task of selecting projects for funding. The programme also has an informal Evaluation task force, consisting of programme staff and representatives of all Member States/Åland. The programme is guided by EU regulations: Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013 referred to as “CPR regulation” Regulation (EU) No 1301/2013 referred to as “ERDF regulation” Regulation (EU) No 1299/2013 referred to as “ETC regulation” The Programme Monitoring Committee has approved a Programme Manual (Annex 1) for the project applicants and beneficiaries. The Manual sets out the main procedures and rules of the programme. 1.2. The regulatory framework for the evaluation Main EU regulatory references which are relevant for the scope and contents of this evaluation are • Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013, in particular Article 54 describing the general provisions on evaluation, Article 56 on evaluation during the programming period, Article 110 defining the functions of the Monitoring Committee and article 114 focussing on evaluation. • Regulation (EU) No 1299/2013, in particular recital 26 on the responsibility of the Managing Authority on carrying out evaluations on basis of the evaluation plan and Article 14 describing the requirements for the submission of implementation reports. 1.3. The Central Baltic programme evaluation plan In compliance with Article 56 of Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013, the Central Baltic programme Monitoring Committee has approved an Evaluation plan (Annex 1). The initial plan was approved in the first Monitoring Committee meeting. The plan has been discussed in later meetings, as foreseen by the regulations. The current version of the Evaluation plan was approved by the Monitoring Committee in its 4th meeting on 23 November 2016. The objective of the Evaluation plan is to support the result orientation and general implementation of the Cooperation Programme. The Evaluation plan defines the strategy chosen for evaluating the impact of the programme priorities and specific objectives and provides crucial information for decision-makers, programme implementation bodies and for reporting in the form of Annual Implementation Reports and the Final Report. The Evaluation plan gives an overview of the planned evaluations as well as resources required and reserved for them. Two main evaluations are planned: impact evaluation and an evaluation on the implementation of the programme Communication strategy. An impact evaluation of each Specific Objective of the programme is both a requirement but also highly relevant for all programme bodies. Information on the achievements of the result indicator targets will be gathered based on the methodologies set out for establishing the baseline. The evaluation of the programme’s Communication strategy will be done on a broad level, comprising both the set-up of the organisation and the quality of the work done. Relevant evidence will be gathered for the Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020 directly. After the main framework for evaluations has been agreed upon by the Monitoring Committee, the Managing Authority (MA) will share information about its Evaluation plan with other Managing Authorities located in the Central Baltic Programme countries (covering the same regions or policy fields). This allows for sharing of information or for joint data collection where relevant. The MA/JS internal working group will discuss the findings and recommendations made by the evaluators. A draft reply will be presented to the MC and the MC is asked to discuss and complement the reply. The MC will finally agree on the follow-up of each recommendation. Once the evaluation findings have been made available, the programme will use the findings in the following possible or complementary ways: As input to future decisions on how to allocate remaining programme funds As input to discussions about cross-border cooperation Post 2020 To communicate the results of the Central Baltic programme in the period 2014-2020 The evaluation reports will be made public on the programme website and their content used in programme communication to the target groups (applicants, projects, wider audiences) where considered relevant and interesting. For this purpose, the evaluation reports shall consist to relevant parts of infographics, fact sheets and other material that can be used towards the general public. The programme aims to use the evaluation results in improving its current procedures and develop the quality of the work of the programme. The evaluation may also be used as input for allocating any remaining funds or discussions regarding future cooperation programmes. Objectives and scope of the evaluation The overall goal of this evaluation is to assess how the Central Baltic programme’s funding contributed to the objectives of each programme priority. For each priority, the evaluation should answer if the objectives of the priority were achieved through the projects and to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of the Programme’s selected Specific Objectives and communication efforts in reaching the wanted impact. The evaluation should also recognise which other factors contributed to the achievement. The evaluation covers all projects that have ended or are in their closure period by the end of 2018. Other projects that have come very far in implementation may also be included. At least 20 projects will be in this phase. The evaluation also consists of an evaluation of the programme’s effectiveness in the field of communication.
