In order improve the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the policy making processes, monitoring has
a strategic role to play. ESPON, in close cooperation with DG Regio, agreed to develop a project aimed at
creating a monitoring tool to the four EU macro-regions that can, on a regular basis, provide and promote
territorial evidence for the EU macro-regional strategies and their policy orientations and objectives. This
session will present the monitoring tool being developed and discuss its contribution to the implementation of
the macro-regional strategies and discussion on post 2020.
