{Jathumbnail}21-03-2016 – Today EAPN released its Barometer Report – Monitoring the implementation of the (at least) 20% of the European Social Fund that should be devoted to fight against poverty during the period 2014-2020 at a side-event organised by EAPN at the Annual Convention for Inclusive Growth 2016. The aim of this report is to carry out an initial monitoring of:

  • The implementation of the 20% earmarking of ESF on social inclusion and poverty reduction, in terms of spending, quality of delivery and impact;
  • The quality of the delivery on partnership with civil society, monitoring the code of conduct on partnership, and as partners in delivery.
