MDI and partners are going to analyse the effects of local, regional and national rural development work. In addition, the ways of measuring the effects are going to be analysed. The study differs from the previous evaluations because all of the regional levels are going to be analysed at the same time. It is essential to find out how well actors at different levels interact and whether the actions are supported by each other. The work will be completed in the autumn of 2015. Ruralia is responsible for analysing the local level, the regional level is going to be analysed but Avaintaito and national level by Spatia. MDI is responsible for the work as a whole and participates in the evaluation of all levels.
