The project proposals are evaluated against four criteria – potential for lasting impact, relevance and coherence, formulation and design, and feasibility

1. Potential for lasting impact

1.1. Extent to which the Project aims at practical and tangible outcomes. Potential of planned outcomes to generate positive changes.

1.2. Potential for the outcomes to be adopted, or to be used or to be streamlined by stakeholders into existing practices. Extent to which the Project deliverables are the actual solution to a problem (or it is part of a bigger project and thus, the issue might not be addressed).

1.3. Potential of the dissemination and communication measures. Extent to which the Project promotes public and private partnership and integrates such cross sectorial collaboration in its implementation.

2.2. Extent to which the Project responds to the needs of the target groups (beneficiaries, stakeholders).

2.3. Extent to which the Project is coherent with local policies and/or regulations, and contributes to a more effective regulation and/or enforcement.
