Background and further information:

The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) Regulation requires the establishment of a Common Monitoring and Evaluation System (CMES) for the operations co-financed by the EMFF under shared management. The objectives of the CMES are as follows:

a) to demonstrate the progress and achievements of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP), to consider the general impact and to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of EMFF operations;

b) to contribute to better targeted support for the CFP and the IMP;

c) to support a common learning process related to monitoring and evaluation;

d) to provide robust, evidence-based evaluations of EMFF operations that feed into the decision-making process.

The purpose of this document is to report to the European Parliament and the Council on the implementation of the CMES. This report is required every four years, the first time at the end of 2017. It provides an opportunity to take stock on the strengths and weaknesses of the system, and draw lessons for the future.
