MDI evaluated the operating of the MAL Network. The MAL Network is a national network for land use, housing and transport. Since 2012 the MAL Network has continued as a cooperation forum for 16 cities, regions, the civil service, the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities and research organisations. The work focused on evaluating how the network has functioned and on sparring thoughts to ensure the preservation of the work. The evaluation was finalised in September 2015.
