By Peter Dickinson and Richard Lloyd
This report presents the findings of an evaluation of the sustainable development cross-cutting theme, and the promotion of green jobs, within the European Social Fund (ESF), focusing on the environmental aspects of the cross-cutting theme. The report is based on the findings from a programme of qualitative research with programme stakeholders, Government Offices and Co-Financing Organisations, a survey of projects funded under the current ESF programme, and case study research with a sample of projects.
The evaluation was part-funded by ESF technical assistance under the 2007-2013 England and Gibraltar ESF programme evaluation strategy.
