N.B. The 3Cs evaluation initiative was formally concluded in June 2008. This site gives access to all evaluation outputs and relevant related documents and will serve as an archive, while no longer being updated.
The Heads of Evaluation for External Cooperation of the EU Member States and the European Commission have initiated a series of joint evaluation studies with a view:
1: To explore and assess the role played by the Maastricht Treaty precepts of coordination, complementarity and coherence (3Cs) in the EU's development co-operation policies and operations; and
2: To determine how far these have been applied in practice and with what impact.
This website gives access to the six final reports from the 3Cs evaluation initiative and is a key electronic resource on coordination, complementarity and coherence for development. -> More information on the initiative.
