How-to guide on long-term evaluation

This guide on long-term evaluation assists cities, especially former measure leaders, in applying long-term evaluation to their chosen measures and delivering the evaluation results. The document first provides a definition of long-term evaluation, and then some advice on how to do it. It then presents some results of previous long-term evaluations of transport measures, mainly from outside CIVITAS projects, in order to show the benefit of carrying out long-term evaluation.

This guide, prepared by the CIVITAS CAPITAL project, has been used by cities for long-term evaluation exercises via its Activity Fund. The following cities conducted a long-term evaluation of previous CIVITAS measures based on this “how-to guide”: Donostia - San Sebastian (CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES), Funchal, Bologna and Utrecht (all CIVITAS MIMOSA).
